  • Right now I'm in toledo with my family and it seems shameful what alcazar is closed why staff took several months without charge. Many tourist sites workers in the hospitality industry are also several months without charging but not so let put cafés serve meals or make beds. They could learn a little of the other workers. If they come to Toledo to see it ahorrense the trip

  • You can visit without problems, the entrance is free. And it is really quite wonderful. All the Alcazar is but library exceeded harvest expectations.

  • Only comment in the library, located on the top floor of the building, there is a café with breathtaking views of the city. You can have a coffee for € 1.

  • Worth visiting for the views and free internet
  • 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!
  • Great views. Blah food.
  • The cafeteria is located on the top of the city with spectacular views. Do not forget to accompany the coffee with a volume of your favorite author. In fact, this space invites the enjoyment of reading.
