Marvel at this grand 19 m (62 ft) gate opened in 1827. Puerta de Toledo was originally ordered by Joseph Bonaparte. After the withdrawal of French troops from Spain, the construction continued, and the gate was finished under the rule of King Fernando VII. Admire the decoration that sits on top of each of the three neoclassical arches. Look for the coat of arms of Madrid and the allegory of Hispania, the national personification of Spain.

  • It is similar to the Puerta de Alcalá, but for my the difference lies in the environment, while the other is opposite the Retiro Park and a few blocks from the fountain of Cibeles, the Toledo gate saw by chance, going to the Manzanares River, in the area of La Latina. I do not recommend going to visit especially if you pass through there to take advantage and take out a couple of photos. The Puerta de Toledo, line 5 subway approaches them.
