This time we rented an apartment in a city I've always wanted to spend more than one day in, in the city of Toledo. We've been there twice before, but it had been in the mid to late 70's and it's always been in the back of my mind that I'd like to return and have some time to really get to know the city.
Toledo is a wonderful old walled city about 40 miles southwest of Madrid, the newer parts, and they are rather extensive now, are outside the walls, outside the old city. Our apartment was in the old Jewish Quarter in an old building that has been modernized inside. It was air conditioned and had a balcony/terrace. Inside it had a bedroom, modern kitchen, living room, and 2 bathrooms.
Each morning we had breakfast on the terrace, then walked through the narrow streets, visiting Moorish buildings, Visigoth, Jewish and Spanish ones too. The whole city is full of buildings built in the Mudejar style with "keyhole" doors and windows. We took more pictures than I think we ever have.
