Holy Toledo! –and Velázquez, too!: SpainLive
Picture perfect Toledo, home of El Greco.
Start the day in say, Toledo. A nice medieval sort of town and finish your day at the end of the Paseo del Prado purchasing churros to take back to your hotel. See Count Orgaz being buried as the old gate is no longer there and you can see the painting much better. Now there is no doubt NO ONE wants you in their church, as you are ushered in and then out onto the street.
Rehearsals for Holy Week outside the walls of Toledo
New York demolished Penn Station. St. Louis turned Union Station into a shopping mall. Who else but those wise madrileños would turn an old train station into a tropical garden?
In Madrid the Prado may close, but another is open.
Velázquez’ girls beckon you on along Paseo del Prado late into the night.
But least we forget, someone will unwillingly make the Paseo del Prado their bedroom tonight.
