Alcantara Bridge, Toledo

4.7
Enter the old city over Alcantara Bridge, the same bridge the ancient Romans used. Walk across the Tagus River and get excellent views of the city, while enjoying the architecture of the bridge itself. Conveniently, this also happens to be the fastest route into the city from the train station. Declared a national museum in 1921, this bridge is a lasting part of history, as well as a practical means of entering the city.

    Alcantara bridge we walked, ending our long hours walking the walk on the handsome Toledo, heading by foot to the train station. In General, my advice, hitting Toledo, do not use any means of transport, otherwise you risk missing out on any krasotishhu. The bridge is majestic and surprisingly ancient. A view of the town and the castle of Alcazar with simply stunning. Yes and the arch gate, built in the 8th century (!) just makes you shut up and listen to immortality.

  • Beautiful fortified stone bridge. Great view to see the river and old town from below
  • One of my favorite places in Spain. I recommend going at night when the spotlights arte lighting up the bridge and the surrounding cliff faces.
  • Beautiful old bridge. Great spot for a photo op.
  • Great view, but otherwise not much to do. Pass there by foot on the way from/to the train station.
  • I recommend toledo to anyone who travels to Madrid it's only half an hour on the renfe

Where to stay in Toledo

When visiting Toledo, staying inside the old city walls allows for on foot access to all of the area's historical landmarks as well as a tight network of shops, restaurants, and museums. Similarly, staying in the old center, which sits on a raised hill overlooking the city, avoids a daily hike to the city's main attractions. Many old buildings in the center have been transformed into boutique hotels and guest houses, allowing visitors to experience the rich historical heritage and beautiful architecture of the city.
