In Toledo there is an architectural mix and that is beautiful and historic buildings are intermingled with the traditions and customs of the current modern city and it is customary to hide centuries-old buildings that have been gradually recovered to its intervention in the life of the new millennium.
An example of this are the Cigarrales, farmhouses that were used as homes for recreation by the bourgeoisie and Toledo today converted into gardens of peace on the banks of the Tagus, especially south of the city.
Construction of rustic beauty, noble, some even convent, are surrounded by beautiful gardens, terraces or patios filled with plants and flowers.
Those that reach older extensions (7,000 m2, once stood the minimum qualifying for recognition as Cigarral for a property), have around her pool, spa and especially large tracts of olive, almond and apricot to get to the annual spring confer mansions to a veil of soft floral velvet.
These historic mansions, which they say are named for the influx of crowds of cicadas in summer, have adapted to the times, leaving behind the small stage for noble palaces of Castile, to become cozy with an option to enjoy City and the surrounding nature from a point where the views can both make you lose your head as the verses that inspire forgot Lorca, Tirso, Garcilaso or Lope de Vega.
