Meeting Toledo


The 3rd day in Madrid was full of surprises for all of us.
Our Spanish friends had organized an excursion in the historical city of Toledo which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986 for its extensive monumental and cultural heritage.

With Helena, our tour guide, we strolled down the small streets and she gave us many information about the old town and the historical sites. We visited the old Jews’ synagogue and the museum of the famous painter Domenicos Theotokopoulos, the known as El Greco.




We also had the opportunity to taste some traditional dishes of Toledo which were quite delicious.

After our return to Madrid, some of us enjoyed Matadero and Casa de Campo by bike. It was a very nice activity to see one of the most recreational areas with nice views of the city.
