A Walled Beauty

Photobucket Toledo, Spain is a walled, protected city.

  PhotobucketToledo's surrounded on three sides by a bend in the Tagus River.

  PhotobucketNow just pause a moment and think of why such imposing defensive walls were needed. It's quite sobering.

It is a huge visual reminder of Europe's tumultuous past.

It leaves a stunning beauty to Toledo today.
