In an attempt to dispel those wearisome post-holiday doldrums, I decided to put up a few pictures. I need to remind myself that I do, in fact, live in a pretty place – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, no less – even if there’s no beach in sight… sigh.
Enjoy these views of Toledo, I’ll be adding to this post as I take more pics.
Taken from the citadel, with a view of Toledo Cathedral
From the citadel, with one of its four turrets in view
Same place, different window
View of the Tagus river on a murky autumn day
View of the barrio of Santa Teresa, which isn’t usually all that scenic, but it was kind of pretty at sunset today when I took this snap on my way to the dentist
Taken from a bridge across the Tagus river on a hazy winter’s day
View of El Castillo, built eons ago to defend Alcantara Bridge below.
This is the “classic” view of Toledo

You are absolutely right to remind yourself what a lovely place you live in. It’s beautiful and I love it too.
And it’ll be a pleasantly warm next time you pay a visit 🙂
Brings back memories! Enjoy it.
I thought it might 😉 The first shot was taken from the cafeteria in the Alcazar, where you can still get a coffee and a bun for €2.20. Incredible! In the long month before getting internet at home, it was my office.
When you live in a pretty place it’s easy to forget it and stop looking around you 🙂 BTW: I LOVE the panoramic view from the Alcazar!
I’ll be taking more pics this weekend when my friend is here 🙂

Beautiful. The autumn/murky river one is my fave. I was in Toledo on kind of a hazy day mid-spring and my photos are definitely not that crisp. Plus I used film camera, still, and then waited several years to develop 25 rolls, so the quality was not very good 😦
film cameras – those were the days! My mum’s still using one of those 😉
my mom upgraded before I did!
