  • The visit to the Alcázar instructs us in the history of the Spanish civil war, the famous general Moscardó that even if that meant that they kill the son would not give up. Worth admiring, architecture exhibitions that have are very well mounted and make very interesting Museum.

  • 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.
