  •  And see the whole picture from through this gate for the city of Toledo is brimming with art and architecture, inadvertently overlooked, but very beautiful. Tend to overlook the sculpture at the top of the gate, but worth a look.

  • 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 ;-)

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.
