Puerta de Toledo, Madrid

(280+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.

  • We stayed in a hotel right by this ancient gate, it is a very impressive sight. Right in the middle of a very busy road junction but worth the time to visit.  more »
  • A very large stunning monument that is totally out of place at then end of a junction of roads. It deserves more recognition.  more »
  • One of the monumental gates of Madrid, always you can visit the trail or right-of-way area to Vicente Calderón.

  • It's a nice place, some cool restaurants and bars in the area. Next to it there is "la tabacalera" which I would recommend visiting.
  • Beautiful small gate, one of the nineteen city gates that had the Walls of Philip IV
  • Worth a visit but didn't stay long just passing through
  • This is a landmark that can't be missed. Have your photo taken with this monument in the background.
  • One of the many gates of the former Madrid Walls, this was the south west limit of the limit for many years. To get there, follow the "Toledo" street down from Plaza Mayor.
