From Toledo to Almorox

Twenty seven kms from Toledo, on the N-403 road to Avila, having left Rielves behind, you arrive to Torrijos, a town with a strong economic potential where you can admire the collegiate church -Colegiata del Santísimo Sacramento, a small 16th century Gothic-Renaissance cathedral, with a magnificent facade and a beautiful altarpiece, as well as the Hospital de la Caridad and the chapel-Capilla del Cristo de la Sangre.

Some 12 kms ahead lies Maqueda, whose castle can be seen from a radius of several miles. The Mudejar Vela tower and the late 15th century Rollo-a stone column indicating a municipality's jurisdicional independence-are also worth mentioning.

The next stop, thirteen km beyond, is Escalona, a town that boasts what is said to be the province's second most important castle, after the one in Montalban. The remnants of the old city walls, the Plaza Mayor, and the Convento de las Concepcionistas are some of the other treasures worth visiting.

Coming now close to the end of our itinerary, after more eight kilometres, we reach Almorox, whose most outstanding feature is the Plaza Mayor, which boasts of having the best Rollo of the whole province and some very handsome 17th century municipal buildings.
