Castilla La Mancha


One of the most striking towns in Spain. A beautiful fortified town is amazingly well preserved . The town rests on the steep sides of a mountain and the  “hanging houses” built right up to the cliff edge, literally takes your breath away when seeing it.

Alcázar of Toledo

Alcázar of Toledo is a stone fortification located in the highest point of Toledo.  A royal residence for Charles V, but by the time it was finished the court had moved to Madrid, and instead was where widowed queens would retire. Today, it is home to Spain’s national military museum
