Spain - Madrid, Toledo and Seville



Did a whirlwind tour of these cities on a cold and wet January, covering Madrid, Toledo and Seville over a short trip of four nights. It was quite possible thanks to Spain's very reliable and well connected train system, although I wish I had more time at the art museums in Madrid.

Spain is extremely easy to get around in, loads to see, taste and do! It is also a photographer's heaven. Each region is so different - I've visited south of Spain and Barcelona years ago before I developed an interest in photography, and now they are back on my list for a re-visit! However, Madrid had loads to offer in terms of art and culture (and shopping), while Seville and Toledo have experienced years of history having been under Muslim influence in the middle ages. And then there's the birthplace of flamenco in this sultry heart of Spain.... An amazing experience.
