The streets in Toledo are very narrow so I used my 9-18 mm wide angle lens on the Olympus PEN E-P5 a lot. Inside the buildings I also had the Samyang 7.mm fisheye lens on the camera quite often (in the meantime I bought the M.Zuiko 8mm F1.8 Fisheye and sold the Samyang) and defished the pictures when I came home. I wrote a tutorial a short while ago to explain how to do this. Besides this my complete equipment was with me but the lenses mentioned above were used the most.
Santa Iglesia Catedral Primada
The main attraction of the city is the cathedral Santa Iglesia. I had my accomodation right next to the cathedral, including a nice terrace with a great view on the cathedral to make some photos at night. The inside of the cathedral is also worth seeing of course, since the cathedral is right in the centre of the city you can’t miss it. Let’s see some impressions:
Iglesia de San Ildefonso
This church is also worth a visit, especially because you can step up to the roof to get a spectacular view over the historical Toledo. The white walls in the cathedral are also very nice to look at:
Monasterio San Juan de Los Reyes
In the monastery is also a nice church, let me show you some pictures from it before I continue with the monastery itself.
The cross-coat and the wooden ceilings of the monastery are spectacular, here are some pictures from the place:
The alcazar is not very spectacular from the inside but from the outside it’s impressive. In addition you can visit the Museo del Ejercito, the military museum. There are many, many exhibits and you can spend there all day if you like.
As already mentioned, you can hop from sight to sight in this city and it’s possible to explore it on foot. These are some final impressions, it’s worth a visit!
