Holy Toledo!!

Saturday Britt and I went on an adventure to the little old town of Toledo. It was beautiful!! It´s a town full of tiny cobblestone roads that wind up and down and in all direction. We walked around the whole town to see everything we wanted to see. And I literally mean the WHOLE town. We were so tired by the end of the day but it was well worth it! The town is built on a hill with a river surrounding most of it. The Cathedral sits on the top and in the center of the hill and then everything else lies around it. I think we broke our record for the most pictures taken in one day....somewhere around 350ish! I know ridiculous! but we had fun and we´ll remember more! haha enjoy! Toledo is known for their mazapan. It´s basically pure sugar with a little bit of bread...not my favorite.
This is Monasterio de San Juan de los Reyes. I fell in love with it! It was so gorgeous and I took SO many pictures. This is in the beautiful courtyard.

I also fell in love with doors...kind of weird I know. But they are all seriously SO amazing!! This one is huge as you can tell, even though britt is tiny.

This will be one side of my future house. Yes please!!

This was all over! Cool huh?

Museo de Santa Cruz. A lot of El Greco´s paintings were here. Very beautiful!

Toledo is known for their swords. They are so cool! I never thought I would really say that but I honestly loved them and wanted to buy one. Not worth the 500 Euros though so I bought a mini sized one instead.

This is the city! There is the city wall in the background which was so beautiful and of course I loved it (i loved everything)

On top of Puerta del Sol.

Toledo!!!

We LOVE pan! They eat baguette for every meal and inbetween. woohoo for gaining lbs!!

Puerta Nueva de Bisagra. The very outside of the town.

Just our size!

This was just a random little corner that we though was so cute so we took a billion pictures here.

Aladin´s palace? Oh no wait, just the King´s Monasterio
