“Impressive entrance to the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Drove through this gate on the bus and had to walk back to it just so I could take a picture. It is a striking entry into the walled city.

“A beautiful gate.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

Alfonso VI, who conquered Toledo in the late 11th century, entered it through this gate.
The entire military architecture of the gate is, in fact, the original thing from the 10th century.
Most rides into town stop for a minute next to the gate for a photo-op. Do not miss this chance to snap a photo of this lovely gate.

“A Heck of Gate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

For most this is the entrance to the city when you walk up the hill from the bus station. An impressive and imposing city gate (one of many) that certainly looks like it could hold off an army or two for a while. Great for photos.

“Imposing entrance to the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

Large imposing entrance to the city. Toledo is one of those places you should never miss, there are miles of twisting alleyways with a great vista from every corner. This imposing structure is yet another you will find to amaze. You need your walking shoes here, but its worth the effort.
