We left early morning for Toledo, often called: City of Three Cultures: Arab, Christian and Jewish. The history of Toledo dates back to the Roman occupation (Toletum) circa 192BC.
We found parking at the end of a steep hill near the 13th century cathedral or the Alcázar that sits on the outskirts of the old city. The origin of the building dates back to 3rd century Roman times. El Greco lived here for many years and some of his works can be seen in the Gothic ...

After a bit, we found the Mezquita - the Cathedral and I persuaded Juliet to get tickets to go in. It is another huge structure, like the Cathedral we didn't see in Granada. This one has a lot of Moorish features. I didn't read up on it while we were in it but I suspect it is a converted mosque. ...
