The Old And The New: Tolmo Museum, Toledo

The Tolmo Museum in Toledo, just three minutes walking distance from my house, opened its doors to the public in October 2013. I love the eclectic “chronological mix”, spanning two millennia: The building, a beautiful medieval church, houses a modern art exhibition and there’s remnants of Roman baths in the basement, which can also be viewed.

Castellar De La Frontera – Pretty Doors, Pretty Views

This is the penultimate picture post from my Andalucía trip a month ago. Perched high up on a hilltop in Cádiz Province, you’ll find the whitewashed village of Castellar De La Frontera. The drive up the narrow road with its hairpin curves was a bit nerve wracking, to say the least, but it was definitely worth it for all the charming quaintness awaiting us.

The doors quite took my fancy. Maria's sister was kind enough to pose for this shot :)
