Adorning the top of a mountaintop, Toledo rests 70 km south of Madrid. Easily accessible by train, bus and car, this formal capital of the Spanish empire makes the perfect day trip. Toledo is known for its production of traditional swords and knives as well as its religious tolerance dating back to the 14th century. It is a place of coexistance of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim cultures containing the Synagogue of Santa María la Blanca, the Synagogue of El Transito, Mosque of Cristo de la Luz and the church of San Sebastián. The views from the various sides of the mountaintop are incredible. Wandering around on a sunny day while stopping occassionally for a drink and tapa in an outdoor cafe is one of my favorite things to do there.
