TOLEDO

BY: LUCÍA PUGET, 2BTO-A

Toledo is a province of Spain situAted in the centre of this country. It is an hour from Madrid, the Spanish capital.
Toledo is an old city and it has been influenced by three different cultures: Moslem, Hebrew and Christian. We can find big churches, synagogues, mosques and bridges with interesting stories and legends. This city is surrounded by a river called Tajo, the longest river of the country.
It is considered one of the cities most important in our country. Toledo has been declared "Patrimonio de la humanidad", and many people call it: "The second Rome" .
In my opinion, the best time to visit Toledo is in winter because it snows sometimes, and in Summer it is too hot to walk through the city. At night, it is the moment of the day in which the city is more beautiful. The city is totally lit in the dark night.
