Puerta de Toledo, Madrid

#160 of 1,337 in Things to do in Madrid
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 good to see it while in Madrid. For me, Puerta Alcala was the best, so it was not that impressive to see Puerto de Toledo. However, it good to see it while there.  more »
  • The Puerta de Toledo is a beautiful walk to enjoy since since it is you can walk to the roundabout of the pyramids. from there cross the beautiful bridge of Toledo and down to Toledo gardens through which the river Manzanares. It is a highly relaxing sight walking quiet and then return by the modern bridge of metal through the park with games for children framed in a carefully selected natural view.

  • Beautiful, monumental, but for those who are in Europe it's no big deal, got better. Is not known, but if you're going through, as was my case, there's no harm of a stop and check out the area.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
