Puerta de Bisagra, Toledo

4.6
Cross through Puerta de Bisagra to see how it looks from both inside and outside the city, and to appreciate its interior. This mighty gate is of Moorish origin but was rebuilt in the 16th century, not for defensive purposes, but to demonstrate the great power of the emperor. On the city side, look for the doubled-headed eagle that is the focal point of the coat of arms for Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor. On the outer side, look for city’s coat of arms. Be careful: The gate faces a busy roundabout. Plan to see Puerta de Bisagra and other attractions that appeal to you using our Toledo attractions tool .

  • It is well-kept and is imposing, especially at night. It is worth to go through it towards the old town.
