Toledo

Toledo is unbelievably gorgeous. Only God knows why King Philip moved the capital from here to Madrid (as much as I loved Madrid…). It’s like an ancient city, protected from all modernized architecture and gaudy neon advertisements. Everything is still built with the traditional stones and granite, and the old city is based on high ground because there used to be a moat protecting it. Here are a few pictures:

 


And a famous cathedral we went to…

If I were to study abroad again, I would most assuredly go to Toledo. It’s so enchanting.
Later on in the night, Brittany and I went out to eat and this is what the square looked like at night:
Looking forward to Barcelona tomorrow! (not so much to the 8 hour bus ride…)
