Skull Sword Handle

Sword in Toledo, Spain

Toledo has a history in the production of bladed weapons, which are now popular souvenirs of the city.  It is a city in central Spain. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986 for its extensive cultural and monumental heritage and historical co-existence of Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures.  As such it is at times referred to as the "City of the Three Cultures".  Given the current cultural clashes in this ruined world, maybe we can learn something from this historical city.
