Puerta de Bisagra, Toledo
(4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Puerta de Bisagra on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Toledo itinerary planner.

  • It is the main gateway to the old town of Toledo. A magnificent stone building with coats of arms culminating an impressive fortified wall. It is said that King Alfonso VI, finished the wall works in 1085, after retaking the city

  • Very interesting, transports you to the era... an entry with its walls, its paved flooring, a place where you should spend, having opposite to visit the old hospital with guided tours...

  • This large and admired door, even if you do not pass through the same is very nice your entire environment and a true work of art

  • Fantastic. Tour guide was great. Our imagination ran wild here.
  • It is the gateway that connects the city of Toledo from the North (Madrid). In the vicinity we can find "La Vega", a large park in which there are some kiosks and where is located the market Tuesday. Also some nights are medieval markets (normally at trade fairs or circumstantial events)

  • To my mind, today is the main gateway of the city, also the most beautiful and complex, have to observe it well to realize great architectural strategy Prodefensiva, unfortunately the majority spend long, looking for many other monuments and corners of this beautiful metropolis. A must visit.

  • 即將離開古城時回到這裏,落日餘暉下的它有着耀眼的美麗,但卻如此的安靜佇立在此,默默的守護着這座古城。這裡是古城遊的開始也是結束,它的美讓我不舍離去,那一刻想到留下來終老。
  • Entrance to the city from the door hinge, you seem to be in the middle ages. Good state of conservation.
