Toledo, an ancient city 40+ miles south of Madrid, will give us an opportunity to explore the town that El Greco lived in.
We started our day with a trip to Toledo to learn more about, and see, the paintings of El Greco. We journeyed to the former Spanish capital of Toledo, "City of the Three Cultures",where Muslims, Jews, and Christians once peacefully coexisted. We visited a sword and damascene workshop, damascene is an intricate Muslim craft "is the art of decorating steel with threads of gold and silver."
We returned to Madrid to have a quick lunch in the area of our hotel then we finished our tour with a visit to Reina Sofia to see Guernica by Picasso. After a delicious dinner of tapas we wandered back to the hotel to pack!
We have an early departure tomorrow for the airport to fly home!
