Toledo

Toledo is a very small city in Spain. It’s streets are narrow, shops are small, and the buildings are stone. It was built to be a Roman fortress centuries ago because it is surrounded by the Tajo river on three sides. Its architecture is a mix of gothic and Arabic influence. In Toledo, I visted a mosque that was built in 999 and The Monastery of St. John that was built in 1476. I also went to the Santo Tome church and saw an El Greco painting, “The Burial of Count Orgaz.”
