  • Beautiful mudejar-style door, next to the mosque of the Cristo de la Luz, built during the 14th century to give access to the walled city. It is built in stone, masonry and masonry, with battlements and the frieze of the brick gate. Highlight your pointed Horseshoe arch, as well as its construction perpendicularly to the wall in order to be an alternative so the horses and carriages would have easy access to the city, to be a little less steep terrain.

  • It is a side door to the walls, it is not very usual in Toledo. It is pretty. It is very close to the mosque of Cristo de la Luz.

  • Most of the tourists pass next to it but never see it! It's just under the Mezquita Cristo de la Luz

  • 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.
