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.

  • Of Roman origin, and reconstructed by the Arabs. In the Middle Ages was the entrance of the pilgrims. Excellent their conservation status. Preferably go to sunset. The city views are magnificent. Very good pictures.

  • Cross the bridge into Toledo's old town from the train station. I think, did not take a 15-minute walk. It was so fantastic that didn't look only on the city of Toledo is early morning when we arrived was pretty much out of fog, looking across the river. And I'm crossing this bridge over the old bridge because the atmosphere and came to Toledo! Mood and will be excited.

  • Very pretty bridge with an absolutely gorgeous view. It's worth taking a tour around the town to see all of the bridges.
  • So beautiful. Very recommendable to have a perfect point of view of all the city. It is near the city center, but you need to go down stairs to be there.
  • 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.
  • A romantic view of the ancient city.
