  • A short walk from Zocodover we find the imposing building of the Citadel, the fortress which now houses the biblioteca de Castilla-La Mancha but also the Army Museum. We are in the highest part of Toledo, which is why the Alcázar is clearly visible from all areas around the city from several kilometers away as we did with the tour outside the walls with trenino rubberized.

  • If you want to have a good view of the city goes to the cafe in the library and look through the windows, if you like to relax and read a little with a breathtaking view of the city then go to the second floor and have chairs in each window to revel in such a beautiful city.

  • 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.
