I'll just start off by saying I loved Toledo. Ewelina and I took a day trip there from Madrid and even though the city is pretty small (one day is more than enough), it's definitely worth seeing.
On one of our Madrid days Ewelina and I look a day trip to Toledo, a city declared a UNESCO world heritage site with a rich history to match. I won't bore you with the details (i.e. I don't feel like researching the details), but, among other things, it's known as the place where Christianity, Islam, and Judaism coexisted.
See photo captions.

|I could not get enough of this view|
|I swear I'm taller than her.|

And then we got to the famous bridge in Toledo. Aaaah it was so gorgeous. I have five billion of the same photo of it, but I couldn't stop myself.
