Above the right side of the stalls is Neo-Classical style organ.
Famous painting by El Greco. The room next door houses paintings from other master painters such as Rubens, Titian, etc.
A hole was made to shed light from the heavens on a very elaborate altar, the Transparence(sp?).
Looking up at the bell tower from the cloister of the cathedral. Orange trees in the courtyard.
All the history, art, and architecture made us hungry. We headed back to the Jewish quarter to eat at Placido restaurant.
We liked the small and not so touristy restaurant.
We asked for dishes typical of Toledo so we ordered a stew(the one with fries on top) and salad with anchovies. All yummy and bread dipped in the wonderful olive oil of Spain so delicious. Topped off with Vino Blanco.
Making our way down one of the narrow quiet streets to the St Martin Bridge. The sombra(shade) from the medieval walls helped block the hot afternoon sun.
Puerta de Cambron, one of the oldest gates in town said to be from the muslim period, around 1500's.
Ah we finally found the San Martin bridge.
Now time to make our trek back up to the main part of the city. We cut through this cobble stone stairway where it's nice and shady.
...and up the steep street. Imagine carrying swords and ceramics with you...I mean literally!
One of many many interesting doors.
A hand knocker similar to the one in Seville.
Back to the train station in Toledo designed in Mudejar style. Meeting Lindsey in Madrid for an evening of Paella and flamenco.
