By 10am we were in Plaza de Zocodover, Toledo's main square, and gateway to the old town. From there we walked toward the Southwest section of Toledo and its Jewish Quarter. On the way we passed the El Greco Museum, and stopped for a taste of what this city is most famous for - it's Marzipan, which is my personal favorite.
It took awhile, but we finally found Sinagoga del Transito, which was built in 1361.
Toledo boasts more souvenir shops than any other town in Spain. Carolyn can vouch that she found just about all of them to my dismay.
Our last stop in this area was San Juan de Los Reyes Monasterio, a grand Franciscan monastery. The style is late Gothic. We made our way back toward the center of town by slowly strolling in and out of the narrow streets and alleys. No matter where you walk in Toledo it always seems your walking uphill. Hence, why we walked slowly. Toledo's Gothic Cathedral is magnificent. It's High Altar Is the most stunning in Spain. Its Treasury is radiant with riches.
Our original plans for dinner had to be changed because most restaurants don't open until after 8pm. We were catching a 7:25pm train back to Madrid so we wanted to eat early. We found a little outdoor cafe named Restaurante Alcazar which suited our needs perfectly. Once we boarded the train we were back in our apartment by 8:30pm. Finally an early evening. My feet said "Thank you".
