HOLA from Toledo, once the capital of Spain and known as the "City of Three Cultures", having been influenced by a historical co-existence of Christians, Muslims, and Jews. There are still sectors in the city which depict these religions.

San Servando Castle,
 a monastery built in 1088 and then later
became a fortress from invading Muslims

More cobblestone streets

Castle El Alcazar

Catholic Cathedral

Figurines of the Last Supper above the first peak

Window in a Muslim mosque

Some shopping time in a quaint pottery shop

Jose ordering eight, foot long crusty baguette sandwiches
 filled with thinly sliced Spanish ham ( no condiments)

A yummy lunch in the plaza

 Time for a frozen yogurt treat in the heat of the afternoon

My mouth is watering seeing the lunch you enjoyed. Cobble stone streets must of been an ankle turner. So much history.
