Trip to Spain: Toledo

22 photo with description
The following point of our program at us had been planned a city Toledo — old capital Spain. With weather a little has not carried, to it photo sad (plus to that, for economy of a card, I removed not in RAW, and in jpg is became a fatal error). So, it is a little photo the most beautiful Toledo which has kept the medieval charm, even after a long and destructive siege of a city republicans during civil war in Spain.

On entrance we were met by pleasant church XIII-XIV of centuries.

Small street of Toledo
Small street of Toledo. Inclinations of streets there, of course, the infernal. And on a crude stone blocks and to go hard, and the car hardly clambers upwards, and стрёмно to move down downwards.

Toledo — very pleasant small town, with narrow small streets, dense medieval building, stone houses and a stone blocks on roads. I urgently recommend to visiting, it is a pity that to us with weather has not carried and photo left sad.
