Castillo de San Servando, Toledo

3.8
Medieval times come alive at Castillo de San Servando, a regional landmark that figured prominently in El Greco's landscape painting "View of Toledo." Originally a Benedictine monastery, the structure became property of the Knights Templar in the 12th century. Templars turned the entire complex into a fortress meant to protect the area against possible Muslim attack, but the structure lost importance during the 14th century. Allegedly haunted by a mischievous knight, the castle remained neglected for several hundred years. Today, the renovated fortress houses a youth hostel, which makes a good base for day trips around the area.

  • Crossing the bridge of Alcántara, is this beautiful castle. He currently works as youth hostel. Up a small slope you can admire the impressive Alcázar.

  • Excellent stay we had choir Romero from in Toledo and in particular in the castle of San Servando. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway with friends. Very cozy and clean place.

  • Over the fence shows that it is open. But entries on all weekdays at 10-30 am were closed. Near from the trees photographed uncomfortable. Conclusion-don't waste your time on it, just take a picture of it from the city, across the river.
