Photographer's Note

Except for its own wonderful architecture, Madrid is quite close to several other beautiful destinations, one of them being Toledo. Luis has kindly accompanied me in my day trip there. Old town of Toledo is located on a hill which is on three sides surrounded by Tagus River. This makes it a great subject for postcard type photography. There are several viewpoints from across the river towards the old town, and for me they were more interesting to visit than the old town itself.
However, once you get to the old town already, there is a multitude of rich interiors in which you can spend definitely more than a day. If you need to peak one: the cathedral is probably the best choice. I have spent over an hour inside the cathedral and it felt not enough. It is a predominantly Gothic structure, however there is as well one Baroque altar inside (in this photo), made of marble, jasper and bronze, by Narciso Tome.
