Tres culturas

Toledo. An hour drive south of Madrid. The city of three cultures. Once the capital of Spain-where Queen Isabella planned to be buried. Ancient walls surrounding the city still protect the historical heart, taking you through huge gates and into the city's layers of Arabic arches, Christian structures, and tiny Jewish streets and synagogues. We explored until the sun set behind the river, a the warm light covered the city and cold winds blew in from the surrounding plains.
