The following post is one that has been sitting sans text in my Draft folder for well over a year, and was only recently rediscovered while making some upgrades to my website. It features a collection of photos taken during our time in the Unesco World Heritage city of Toledo, Spain during May 2017.
Located in the region of Castile-La Mancha, Toledo is located just an hour south of Madrid and is a popular day trip from the capital, though we did spend a couple of nights here as we felt there were plenty of places of interest.
One of the main highlights for us was seeing the Alcázar, an imposing stone fortification on the hill that’s pretty hard to miss if you visit! The structure is now home to the regional library as well as the Museum of the Army.
On the first morning of our stay we woke to stormy clouds, thunder and lightning. I was a bit bummed to have missed capturing the lightning while setting up the camera, though the view even without the drama in the sky was pretty spectacular.
