Photographer's Note

Toledo, a UNESCO World Heritage city, is the provincial capital and the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha. - In the past it was occupied by the Visigoths, having been at that time the capital of Visigothic Hispania, from the reign of King Leovigildo to the Moorish conquest of the Iberian peninsula in the eighth century. The Arabs occupied the city until 1085, when King Alfonso VI of Castile conquered it, and then the rule of the Catholic kings - Toledo is called the city of the three cultures, due to its religious tolerance and cohabitation at the same time and for a long time. Christians, Arabs and Jews, even though Arabs and Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492 - This huge mix of cultures bore fruit, making Toledo forever linked to culture and the arts as well as knowledge - video of my route by teledo at: https://youtu.be/SJd5zB2qcpI
