  • Into the old town from the bisagra gate and climbs the Hill. Gates of the walls, not on the inside. What was once a wall 2. Made of stone is a great gate.

  • It is one of the gates of the wall of Toledo, from there you have a good view and recommend catch air to start to climb through the streets to the historic centre.

  • Nice view of the ancient city fortification
  • Beautiful gate into the castle at Toledo. Go across the street for a spectacular overlook.
  • Less spectacular then expected. But very Intriguing seal.
  • It's almost impossible to miss, but this gate alone would warrant detour in any country. And there is so much more to explore behind the city gates ;-)
  • Historical building
