Toledo

While in Madrid last weekend, I went to Toledo for a day. It's a small city, rich with history, and it's only a thirty minutes train ride away from Madrid. I was told that after arrival there would be escalators to climb up to the city centre but I couldn't find them. It seemed like a joke. So in the heat, I walked all the way up. I spent the day wandering around the narrow streets, bought azulejos, visited the El Greco museum, and had a lovely lunch at La Fábrica de Harinas. And I must have seen like four or five wedding photo shoots. At the end of the day, I found out that the escalators did exist but I still didn't know where they were located. On my way down, leaving the city, they were no longer needed anyway. Toledo was definitely worth a visit.

  8. Oh, the architecture is STUNNING. And escalators leading up to the city's centre?! Sounds like something of a sci-fi film, but the fact that it exists is making me extremely excited, haha. Walking around must've been such a pleasure, too, because the place is amazing, and I think I'd definitely have a wedding shoot there too, haha!

  9. This is really amazing! I loved the pictures and the way you described the visit - the things you saw and bought (and wedding shoots, wow!) and the escalators - they would be needed, I know it was very hot. Well, maybe next time, but even without them, it all seemed so nice, such a lovely day and post!

  23. Toledo is definitely a beautiful town to explore. I can't believe you climbed the stairs. From what I remember, the escalators are near the circular rotunda there. But at least you had fun!
