I visited many Alcazar's in Spain, this wasn't my favourite to visit inside, but it does look spectacular from the outside. The history of the building and surrounds is very interesting to learn about.

One of the most spectacular building inside Toledo. Short walk from the gate. Bring wide-angle lens.

Wonderful military exhibition (with many references to the Royal Family). We only spent the afternoon here and really didn't do it justice. There is so much to see and learn here and very well laid out. All in English as well which was much appreciated.

The building itself is huge and very unique. If you have the time, you should also check out the contents.

This is an extremely impressive building and can be seen from miles around. In the third century it was used as a Roman palace and in the 1540’s was restored by Charles V and his son Philip II of Spain. Most of the Alcázar was...More

I love a place that is utilized by locals. This is one of those. We took the elevator up -- I remember it being one floor above the cafeteria. There, at each window overlooking the city, were chairs where one can sit and enjoy solitude...More
