Toledo, Spain

The holy city of Spain – Toledo.

– A nearly impenetrable gatehouse.

The Visogoths constructed the first version of this town on the Tagus River, but the Moors captured it, and improved it.  Muslim, Jewish, and Christian faiths were all practiced here in harmony for hundreds of years.

Toledo also houses the famous Burial of Count Orgaz by El Greco. This magnificent painting hides many stories:

I really don’t understand anything about the Damascene Steel from Toledo.
