    Walk at night on streets and crevices sometimes less than a metre wide, makes you relive the city of yore, where everything seems to stand still. Time in this place seems to stop his progress, as a break. Welcomes you to a sweet nun, in total silence, and watch the tele del Greco where they are designed and placed more than four centuries ago. Here there is also the tomb of the artist and a sacristy that seems even more distant past stories back to build sospingerti

    It is worth seeing one of the convents of Toledo, until they disappear. This is one of the most beautiful. On the road to the tourist visit to the city. Near the stairs rise to the hull. Full of history: Medieval, by el Greco, of the order. Church is very pretty, and the Museum is full of artistic and historical gems. Visit often to make it a very nice nun. And, out... the best monjiles candy of Toledo. Amazing Marzipan, delicious pastries (all done by themselves). I never go without pasta pine nuts.

Where to stay in Toledo

When visiting Toledo, staying inside the old city walls allows for on foot access to all of the area's historical landmarks as well as a tight network of shops, restaurants, and museums. Similarly, staying in the old center, which sits on a raised hill overlooking the city, avoids a daily hike to the city's main attractions. Many old buildings in the center have been transformed into boutique hotels and guest houses, allowing visitors to experience the rich historical heritage and beautiful architecture of the city.
