Photographer's Note

This is a panoramic view of the the historic part of the city of Toledo from the south. The most prominent buildings on the picture are: the Alcazar fortress (16th century) on the the highest part of town; the Gothic Cathedral, dating from the thirteenth century, with its the tall tower; and the large yellow building on the left, which is a Roman Catholic seminary. The city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986 for its extensive monumental heritage, as one of the former capitals of the Spanish Empire and a place of coexistence of Christian, Jewish and Moorish cultures. I put two closeup views of the Alcazar Fortress into the Workshop, one from the same location as the main picture, and the other from a place where the city walls can be seen in front of Alcazar. My earlier Toledo picture shows another, better maintained, part of the city walls.
