      I am intending to double back to Barcelona airport (after three days in the city) and rent a car to drive to Denia where we have a time share for 5 nights.
      We will have the car for a further three weeks.
      What are the points of interest along the way?
      What are some of the highlights of the area= scenic - food- landscape photography- street photography?
      We probably will bypass Valencia and do that as a day trip when we do not have to drive into a large city.
      Appreciate some local knowledge

      Quiet area in Tenerife

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

      From Madrid to Toledo on December 31

      Toledo Nov 25, 2015 at 12:16 AM

      Hi,

      I supposed to arrive at Barajas International Airport of Madrid at 17:00. I’m going to take a taxi and reach Puerta Atocha Railway Station. There I supposed to take a train and get Toledo.
      The problem is, all this should happen on December 31 and last train from Atocha leaves for Toledo at 18:50 hours. So, if my airplane will not be late then I will have enough time to catch this last train and get Toledo. But what should I do if my airplane will be late? What is the best option to get Toledo in case I miss that last train?
      1. Should I take a taxi at Barajas International Airport and ride to Toledo? How much it will cost (approximately)?
      2. Should I take ALSA bus from T-4 Terminal in Barajas? Does ALSA have buses to Toledo from T-4? Do they provide transportation till late evening December 31?
      3. Should I take a bus at Plaza Eliptica Bus Station? Do buses leaving from this bus station provide transportation till late evening December 31?

      And in case I will succeed to get Toledo by train. Will taxi available in Toledo Railway stations late evening December 31 (about 19:00)?
      Thank you in advance. Answers of people living in Madrid and Toledo will be especially appreciated.
      Sincerely,

      Oleg

      Tavera Hospital opening hours

      Toledo Sep 4, 2014 at 8:21 AM

      Dear friends. I am trying all day today to figure out what is going on with the Tavera hospital opening hours and the way one can visit the museum of the hospital.
      Before this year's anniversary of El Greco it was open 10 a 14:30, y de 15 a 18:30 and you could visit the museum only with guided tours at 10:15 - 11:00 - 11.45 - 12:30 - 13:30 - 15.15 - 16:00 - 16:45 - 17:30.
      Now they told me that it is open 10.00-20.00 but only for the exhibition (what exhibition? there is no exhibition now at the hospital) and that one can visit the museum only by quided tours at the times I mentioned before. But this way there is a blank between 18.15 that the last tour finishes and 20.00 that they say the museum closes.Their english is not so good and I can't understand what they want to say, whereas I don't speak spanish and thus we can't understand each other.
      In addition, the "El Greco 2014" foundation, informed me that the hospital will be open from 10.00-20.00 and no guided tours will be necessary for the museum.
      Could you pls help me with this mess? Thank you very much.

      Pls my friends can you help me. I've read in the "Foundacion El Greco 2014" site, at the section "Programma-Espacios Greco" that the Hospital Tavera is going to be open all days from 10.00-20.00. Whereas all the other relevant sites give the ordinary so far opening times of the hospital from 10.00-13.30 & 15.00-17.30. The hospital doesn't have an e-mail address so I can't ask them. If you can find any clue pls contact me. Thanks a lot.

      Hallo again my friends. In order to have the "El Greco" view of Toledo I'm thinking of going up to the Parador de Toledo hotel on the hill. Do you know if one can just go and take photos from the balcony? Well, that seems hard to believe. So maybe we can sit outside and order sth. to eat. How about that? Is it possible? And how can we get to know the hours that dinner or a beer is served? Can we just appear at any time and ask for a tapa? Do you have any idea of the prices? Any hint would be mostly appreciated.

      Train: Toledo>Atocha>Madrid Airport ?

      Toledo Jan 13, 2014 at 1:32 PM

      Hi, I have friends visiting Madrid for several days before flying out of Madrid Barajas airport.

      Because their flight isn't until 1130am, I was going to suggest that rather than visit Toledo on a daytrip, they should spend their last night there then go to the airport the next morning. The Toledo city buses from Pl. Zodocover start running early enough to catch an early AVANT train to Atocha, then take the frequent C1 Cercanias train to the airport.

      Only thing I don't know is how is the transfer between AVANT train and the Cercanias? I figure the platforms are probably close to each other but I thought I would ask. Thanks in advance for your help!
