As we walked into the city of Toledo, we noticed the city was very decorative with flags and decorations hanging from the buildings and the walls. We were informed that the citizens had just finished celebrating Corpus Christi, which is a holiday that celebrates the tradition and the beliefs of the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Because the city of Toledo is known for having one of the best celebrations of Corpus Christi in the world, we were very fortunate to visit Toledo during this time
The city of Toledo is a very religious city with many beautiful churches, cathedrals and even a synagogue. The cathedral we visited was amazing, I've never seen anything like it. I thought it was unique, and rather strange, that they buried a few popes inside the church. The architecture, doors, and even the ceilings were incredible to see. There was one ceiling with a hole in it that displayed a painting of a replica of heaven. This image was very impressionable as it seemed as if we were looking up to the heavens.There were beautiful paintings on the walls and ceilings and even a timeline of the popes painted on a wall. We were also given the opportunity to see the paintings of world renowned artist, El Greco.
Aunque no podemos dejar para mas horas, nos divirtimos mucho. Visite una sinagoga para mi primera vez. Era magnifico y aprendi mucho sobre la historia de los jesuitas en Espana. Tambien tuve la oportunidad para comprar regalos para mi familia por un precio barrato. Intente la mazapan, la dulce famosa de Toledo pero no me gusta mucho. Creo que era tan dulce para mi pero no era horible. En total era una viaje estupendo y Ojala que mi familia tenga la oportunidad para visitar la ciudad increible de Toledo. Los imagenes eran muy impresionantes y nunca me las olviaba.
