Puerta de Toledo, Madrid

(3.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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's a monumental door which is located in the Rotunda of the same name, made in the shape of a triumphal arch in honor of King Ferdinand VII. Click on '' Thanks, Michele R ''

  • Impressive but a little isolated, as grandiose as the Puerta de Alcalá but somewhat unknown. Surrounded by traffic.

  • It is a very characteristic of Madrid. It is very nice and impressive. I recommend to read a little on it so they can be informed and not go "nothing".
