The next stop on the trip: Toledo.
The "Imperial City" is a highly-cultured, fortress city with small pathways big enough only for a man and his horse to walk through. Getting off the train from Madrid, I took a taxi and ooh'ed and ahh'ed at the picturesque sites leading up to the fortress. I visited one of the most prominent Gothic-style Cathedrals in Spain - Catedral de Toledo. The monastery was also close by, and lucky for me, I was there the only day it was open! Exquisite walls and doors surrounded the open gardens in the middle of the Holy place.
That night, I had dinner at a place called "Adolfo's." Only one word can describe it: One-of-a-kind. One of the waiters gave me a small tour of their wine cellar where it held up to a million different wines from all around the world. The food was absolutely incredible. I ended the magical night with a look from Adolfo's rooftop terrance overlooking the entire city.
Here are some pictures of the visit!
It was a magical day I will never forget.
Now I am off too...........
