Lazy Day in Toledo

Erin and I woke up in Sevilla, had breakfast at ‘Trifon’ where we had eaten Tapas 3 nights before and then caught the AVE to Toledo. We checked into the Parador Toledo that is perched higher than the city itself on a hill opposite the river and has a fantastic view of the medieval city.

We didn’t rush ourselves but still made it to tour the cathedral, the main plaza, and a temporary exhibit in the Templar Knights. I’ll probably remember the El Greco paintings most vividly, especially his portrait of Jesus.

We grabbed chic tapas at Adolfo and finally caught up on Spanish cheeses with a sample of 6 varieties. We retreated to the Parador to watch the sunset from our room’s terrace. We ate our earliest dinner yet (8:30) due to their dining policy and had an early night.

We woke up this morning to complete our diurnal cycle by witnessing the sub rise over Toledo.
