A great detour on our Spanish journey, Toledo is a hilltop city known for being the first capital of Spain. During the day the old town comes alive with throngs of tourists who arrive by bus or train. At night, however, the town is empty and you will have the restaurant of your choice to yourself. We toured the two main attractions: the Cathedral and the Santa Cruz Museum and wandered the cobblestone streets admiring the architecture. Since it is only an hour from Barcelona, I definitely recommend visiting this city just for the views.
