Very Warm Medieval Action in Toledo




It was a sunny, warm day. 16 degrees celsius in February. A good day for visiting the medieval fortress of Toledo. The city's old town is perched upon a hill, overlooking the Tagus River. The streets are narrow and winding and a little confusing. El Greco was known for living in this place. His casa/ museo was being renovated though. However, the Museo del Santa Cruz, which used to be a hospital, allows the public to see El Grecos (and Goyas) for free.




I sat at the edge of a cliff and rolled up my sleeves. It was the perfect conditions for drawing aging brick structures and the calloused rock faces that drop into the green river.
