  • Imposing in its history. Being razed and burned on 3 occasions, nothing remains practically of what was the building. Now you could say that it is of new construction. Its size and strategic location draws attention. A museum military that you to my to not liking the subject matter says me nothing. I would not lose time in visiting it inside. On Sunday the free aes input

  • great library where you can have a book, sit and read, and then upstairs you have a cafeteria with windows that let you have a panoramic view on Toledo
  • Beautiful views of the city of Toledo (especially at sunset) & really affordable prices (not a tourist trap..). 1 euro for a cafe con leche and 1.20 for a beer! Not to mention very friendly staff! Definitely recommend!
  • Worth visiting for the views and free internet
  • Great views. Blah food.
  • Good to see
