Category Archives: Toledo
After Lisbon, we headed for Toledo. We flew Lisbon to Madrid, caught a cab at the airport to head to the train station and then a high-speed train to Toledo. A trains, planes and automobile kind of day.
The highlights, the longest (and easiest) walk up a mountain, the greatest Sangria ever and an introduction to Spanish cathedrals.
They do train stations right here.
It seems they know how to do hotels as well. Hostal Del Cardenal
We had lunch at a little place called La Boveda and experienced the best sangria ever. The recipe includes, Gin, Cognac, Martini & Rossi, sugar, red wine, lemon juice, portion to taste, wow. Lunch was good to, but it tasted better after each pull on the sangria.
To reach the town from the hotel, we had to scale a mighty mountain. It was tough as we had to walk from the top of one escalator to the bottom of the next one. Exhausting.
And of course, the cathedral.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
On our arrival in Lisbon. Portugal, we were saddened to be informed that my cousin Lynn’s husband Dale had succumbed to cancer.
Keeping in mind that we are not Catholic, and neither are Dale and Lynn, we decided on an appropriate tribute (we think) in that we were in Spain and Portugal, both of which have a multitude of beautiful cathedrals. We decided we would light a candle in remembrance in each cathedral we visited. Our first candle was lit in Lisbon and we now moved into Spain.
Our travels took us to Toledo.
From Toledo, we moved on to Seville
Our next stop was a day trip to Cordoba and the world-famous Mezquita de Cordoba.
