ARCHITECTURE TOLEDO * pt 2. Golden Age
"I have learned so much more about the history behind the buildings and interiors of buildings. Explanations of symbols (like the shell) into present day functioning (Camino de Santiago) is really super. Historical facts of the area in relation to the history of all of Spain were unknown to me. The explanation is so thorough and interesting.
The Toledo area has become so much more alive and explained, I cannot wait to go there again and see the town with new insights and 'new eyes' .
I like the way Karla uses knowledgable wording and her sense of humour makes learning fun.
I would totally recommend Karla and her events to anyone!"

ARCHITECTURE TOLEDO pt 2 * Golden Era
We learned how to identify the different styles of architecture by looking at the ornate carvings, festoons and magical fantastic creatures.
We looked at el Greco paintings and also at a number of drawings done at the Romantic era.
It was sad to see the destruction of the Alcazar from bombings in the civil war but amazing to see how it has been restored.
I am really looking forward to joining Karla's trip to Toledo to see all these beautiful historic buildings putting my learnt knowledge into what I am seeing.
Karla mixes art and the history and context of how it is all created.
I highly recommend Karla's teaching and events.
