We first got a glimpse of the city from the taxi on the way out of the train station. It's perched up on the top of a hill and offers an Alcazar and many cathedrals and church spires for a skyline.
For those arriving to Toledo with luggage, if you want to do some heavy cardio by lugging your bags up a hill and through narrow and cobblestone roads, be my guest, but I much preferred paying a taxi to drive us up the hill for 5E and then walk the streets unencumbered. Especially given that the digital readout on an outside thermometer showed us that it was 43 degrees Celsius upon our arrival.

I walked back up the hill and along the maze of streets until I found the beautiful St-Mary's Cathedral. What a beautiful cathedral inside and out! It was impressive to see so much investment and money that went into such a big beautiful church from a relatively small city. You can understand why Toledo remained the capital of Spain for a long time. It was definitely the religious epicentre.
