We arrived in Toledo just as the sun was rising up over the mountainous area around the city. Our plan was to walk around as much of the city as possible in a day—and I think we did a good job of that.
From the plaza Zocodover, we walked over to the main cathedral
and up into the bell tower.
After that, we took a break for lunch at La Abadia, where we had a sampler platter of surprisingly filling tapas.

Along the way, we also appreciated (and bought mementos of) some of Toledo’s specialties:
Finally, as the sun was setting, we made it to the Puerta del Sol, one of the original city gates.
