Spain Pilgrimage with Fr. Leo - Madrid & Toledo

Day 3 - Madrid and Toledo

Madrid is bustling with energy which we see at the Buen Retiro Park with its immense Royal Palace. Our program includes the main Catholic sites which are not often part of a city tour such as Descalzas Reales and Encarnacion Monastery where we taste the sweets made by nuns called “torno” (tuntable). We end our tour at the San Miguel Food Market where the entire city of Madrid shops for their food supplies. Here we grab some lunch before heading out to the romantic town of Toledo. We discover what has inspired the artist El Greco in the 16th century and has remained relatively unchanged since his time. We see the Toledo Cathedral which is ranked as one of the greatest Gothic buildings in Europe. We also see the Mosque of Christ of the Light from the 10th century, the only surviving mosque in the city and the Church of San Roman, now a museum. Toledo is the capital of the Catholic Church in Spain and here we celebrate Mass. Dinner is on your own in Madrid tonight. Overnight Madrid. (B.)
