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.

  • Scary and awesome at the same time! They hold some training events there sometimes. The outside garden area is just wonderful, both during the day and at night. The food is very good. The rooms are neat and modest, with twin beds (no bunkbeds) and a big enough private bathroom.
  • Clean rooms, good location, enough food even a toaster. A big and comfortable living room . Unfriendly service not willing to help. Bad mostly no wlan
  • Incredible views of the city
  • It's gr221910657165eat! The experiencia was wonderful and i'm dure that
  • Its suck. really suck. They do not change money even 5Euro bills to coins. They said they don t have money, doesn t make sense at all. And I complained about it, they gave me coins. They lie to customers
