Edit's cards

After a few days without any updates, i'm back with new cards all received this week.
The 1st envelope arrived monday or tuesday with 4 bueautiful cards, 3 from Spain and 1 from Hungary, sent by Edit.
I already had a night view of the St. Martin Bridge in Toledo but seen from the opposite side. This view is exactly what i remember from Toledo when i visited the city a few years ago.

I've been to Ávila 4 times, i think, i liked it very much and took a few pictures in this square. I've bought some cards there and old of them kind of old, this is looks really great. Ávila is most known for the medieval city walls, that were constructed of brown granite in 1090: surmounted by a breastwork, with eighty-eight towers and nine gateways, they are still in excellent repair, but a large part of the city lies beyond their perimeter.

Old Town of Ávila with its Extra-Muros Churches is an world heritage site since 1985.

Edit sent cards from different spanish cities and this one shows the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas, a famous bullring in Madrid. "Situated in the barrio of Guindalera, it was inaugurated on June 17, 1931. It has a seating capacity of 25,000 and is regarded as the home of bullfighting in Spain.
This bullring was designed by an architect called Espeliú. Its style is Neo-Mudéjar (Moorish) with pottery incrustations. The price of the seats depends upon how close they are to the "arena" and whether they are in the sun or the shade (the latter being more expensive). The bullfighting season starts in March and ends in December; bullfights are held every day during the San Isidro Fiesta, and every Sunday or holiday during the season. Bullfights start at 6 or 7pm and last for two to three hours." -

Edit lives in Spain but her home country is Hungary. This is the Heroes Square with the Millenary Monument in Budapest. This monument is a "spectacular ensemble of statues erected to commemorate the thousandth anniversary of the Magyar Conquest is situated at the end of Budapest's most beautiful avenue (Andrássy Street). The monument was designed by Albert Schickedanz and Fülöp Herczog. Many of the statues representing Hungarian Monarchs and Princes of Transylvania were made by György Zala. At the center of the Monument there is a column surrounded by seven figures - leaders of the seven Hungarian tribes." - in:
