- Today, we caught the fast train from Atocha station to Toledo. Travelled 73 km in 27 mins. Very comfortable,smooth quiet ride as the countryside flew by. Arrived at the beautiful Moorish station and caught a cab up the hill to Centro. It is a very atmospheric town. A huge number of cathedrals, museums, synagogue.

One of my favorite sights seen today was El Greco's greatest masterpiece, "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz," which we saw at the entrance of Iglesia de Santo Tomé (Church of St. Tomé).
