Casco Historico de Toledo

The historical center of Toledo is a repertoire of exceptional landmarks that depict diverse architectural influences. Its charming alleys are dotted with a range of landmarks that belong to the Renaissance, Gothic, Mudejar and Arabic eras. The Toledo Cathedral, Alcazar and the Mosque of Cristo de la Luz are some of the most unmissable monuments located at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Muralla de Toledo

Despite the fact that both the Romans and the Visigoths undertook the task of protecting Toledo, it was the Muslims who, after capturing the city in 711, reinforced the old city walls to adapt them to their new military function as the frontier capital of the newly created Islamic State. The old Moorish wall still stands. It's still possible to see some remains of the Visigothic wall next to the Puerta de Bisagra).

Primate Cathedral of Saint Mary of Toledo

Catedral Primada Santa María de Toledo is a huge, Gothic structure built between the 13th and 15th centuries with unusual mudejar-style decoration and vaults in the apse. Take a look at the extraordinary main altarpiece, the statues and frescoes in its 22 chapels, the Renaissance-style choir stalls and the plateresque wrought-iron work. However, the biggest attractions are kept in the museum inside the church: paintings by El Greco, Van Dyck, Titian, Lucas Jordan and Rafael along with Enrique de Arfe's 16th-century monstrance crafted out of gold and silver. Mass is conducted in Spring & Summer.

Puente de San Martín

San Martin bridge was built in 1203 to replace a previous bridge made out of wooden boats that was destroyed by floods. It too was partially demolished in the fourteenth century when the city was under siege during civil war in the Kingdom of Castille but was restored shortly afterwards. San Martin bridge has five arches and is flanked by two solid defensive towers with decorative facades.

Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes

An architectural jewel of the Spanish Gothic style whose outstanding features are the cloisters and the arched galleries. The ground floor houses numerous sculptures along with some fine carved stone reliefs depicting images of animals and vegetation. The upper story has a richly decorated mudejar-style ceiling. The church's interior is a riot of decor containing delicate arches, coats-of-arms, huge eagles and a star-shaped dome. You'll find it by Puerta del Cambron gate. It was commissioned by the Catholic Monarchs to commemorate Spanish victory over King Alfonso of Portugal in 1476.

Puerta de Bisagra

This impressive 16th century gateway is undoubtedly one of the finest entrances to the ancient city. Built by Covarrubias in 1555, it more than merits the adjective "imperial". On the facade, there is a gigantic coat of arms of Castille and Leon kingdom and the two-headed eagle which represented the reign of the Spanish monarchs during the Hapsburg empire. The gateway is formed by two buildings joined by a patio and crenelated wall.
