  • It is a beautiful monument that is worth visiting and pass underneath to sit in the Toledo of so many years ago.

  • Less spectacular then expected. But very Intriguing seal.
  • Beautiful gate into the castle at Toledo. Go across the street for a spectacular overlook.
  • 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 ;-)
  • Puerta del Sol Toledo, dating back to the 14th century, perhaps less well known than that of Madrid, is considered the best Mudéjar door for its strength and harmony. Mudejar art, strictly limited to Spain, is a mix of Christian Arab-inspired elements with embedded style. The largest centers of Mudejar art were Seville, Toledo and Zaragoza. We find in calle Real del Arrabal and was the second door on our route of access to the old town of Toledo.

  • A beautiful historic city. A city to discover each alley, corner and square. A delight.

Where to stay in Toledo

When visiting Toledo, staying inside the old city walls allows for on foot access to all of the area's historical landmarks as well as a tight network of shops, restaurants, and museums. Similarly, staying in the old center, which sits on a raised hill overlooking the city, avoids a daily hike to the city's main attractions. Many old buildings in the center have been transformed into boutique hotels and guest houses, allowing visitors to experience the rich historical heritage and beautiful architecture of the city.
