Toledo – Spain

Toledo is a city of Spain. The visit to Toledo came when we returned home from Madrid.

I was on the way and the four of us agreed to go visit and spend the afternoon there.

Toledo was a small town that was under the Roman empire. With a strategically important location, it was surrounded by the Tagus River where the Romans had built a bridge, later enlarged and restored by the Arabs. In 1085 the king Afonso VI de Castela conquered the city.

The city grew and became one of the Spanish Empire’s caspitals. Thanks to its history, Toledo has a beautiful historical center. With a medieval look, narrow streets and grandiose architecture, Toledo combines Arab, Mudejar, Gothic and Renaissance styles.

Toledo é uma cidade de Espanha. A visita a Toledo surgiu quando regressávamos a casa de Madrid. Calhava em caminho e nós os 4 concordámos em ir visitar e passar a tarde lá.

Toledo era uma pequena cidade que estava sob o império romano. Com uma localização estrategicamente importante, era rodeada pelo rio Tejo onde os romanos tinham construído um ponte, posteriormente ampliada e restaurada pelos árabes. Em 1085 o rei Afonso VI conquistou a cidade.

A cidade cresceu e tornou-se uma das capitais do império espanhol. Graças à sua história, Toledo tem um belíssimo centro histórico. Com uma aparência medieval, ruas estreitas e uma arquitectura grandiosa, Toledo combina estilos árabes, Mudejas, gótico e renascentista.
