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.

  • At the end is a roundabout that divides a little area of the Latin with South (ambassadors) is very similar to the puerta de Alcalá and little else

  • I lived by 1 month well ahead the Puerta de Toledo. Great location, 15 minutes walk from the Centre of Madrid and the nearest metro (line 5 Puerta de Toledo) is well ahead. The neighborhood is quiet, there are a number of markets and restaurants.

  • The little sister that all fame honours the Puerta de Alcalá takes them. If you were to visit the Church of San Francisco el Grande, it is easy to scroll a bit to see it and photograph it.
