  • Built by the Brothers Hospital, has great influence mudejar, at its entrance, half-point horseshoe arches and in the filigree of its blind and lobed arches.

  • 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 ;-)
  • Sun to the sky as would say the castizos, seeking the Km 0

  • After the Bisagra gate, this is the second entry point to the city the Plaza de Zocodover, Toledo neuralgic point road. A little above the door, there are a couple of stores run by Asians where can buy large water bottles for €1. Once inside the city they charged you 1.5 or €2 for the miserable bottle. So do collection in Toledo is very hot.

  • One of the ancient entrance to intramuros doors in Toledo. Climbing from Zocodover hinge door, you find yourself with this immense gate that is kept in a good state of conservation and us approaches to the past of the city of the Tagus.
