Photographer's Note

TOLEDO is a great old, medieval city in central Spain, just south from Madrid. It has a wonderful history and is known as the city of three cultures: Moorish, Catholic and Jewish. There are remains and reminders of all three, though obviously the Moorish (islamic) and Jewish are only historical. It is also a city of art, known for the great El Greco, whose house and museum you can visit.

THE CATHEDRAL OF TOLEDO dates from the 13th century and was built in high gothic style. It houses an impressive art collection as well, including works by the three Spanish greats: Goya, Velasquez and El Greco.

THIS PICTURE is the view from the rooftop balcony of our hotel, which was smack dab in the middle of the old medieval centre. A wonderful place, the narrow lanes made it a bit of a challenge to get there by car, but it was worth the scratches.
