Toledo, Castile-LaMancha, Spain

Although Toledo's fortress, the Alcazar, goes back to Roman times, this incarnation dates from the 1500s when Spain was at the peak of its imperial glory and Toledo was the imperial capital.  The Alcazar was once the palace precinct, but now it's a museum.  And, there goes another bus load of tourists heading into a time warp.  [2009]
