Armoury in scenic Toledo

 

Rio Dajo

Rio Dajo

By Noah- Thankfully, we have managed to squeeeeze in 2 nights in the fortified town of Toledo. Many of the shops here feature hand-made swords, knives and helmets as Toledo was a major producer of armoury. 

Just an hour on the bus from Madrid, it couldn’t be any different. The noisy bustling high streets of the capital are replaced by beautiful maze-like lanes, inhabited by nothing but birds and bees (and the odd tourist tour!). The traffic-laden plazas in Madrid are exchanged for peaceful, calm and virtually car-free squares (great places for an afternoon snack or ice-cream). And even if the beauty of the town doesn’t suffice, the encircling Rio (River) Dajo is a picturesque sight.
