While the Alcazar is the site of the historical fortress of Toledo the current building is quite modern having been totally rebuilt after being destroyed during the 1930s Spanish Civil War. Today it houses what is described as the army museum but don't let the...More

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

Impressive building and impressing collections. If you want to know more about Spain: history, military, politic, social, visit to Alcazar it's a must. Be aware that you need more than 2-3 hours. Even for a foreigner who knows nothing about Spain is captivating starting with...More

this is more of the military museum covering spanish history and their victories in battlefield etc. Might be interesting for Spanish people but not of much interest to foreigners

Everything about the Alcazar is impressive. We spent a lot of time here and could have spent even more.

Dominating the Toledo skyline, this place is a must visit for all. So much to see inside you need to give yourslf plenty time to stroll around all the exhibits detailing so much of the history of Spain.

Located high on the hill overlooking Toledo, this largely reconstructed building is still impressive. The museum itself is entered from one of the streets below and the exhibits are on the various levels of the Alcazar - accessed via steps, or elevator. The view from...More

Extensive building mostly destroyed in Spanish Civil War, now rebuilt but keeps an extensive Military museum. Wonderful collection of Toy Soldiers, and many, many interesting artefacts, well planned and structured. The command room for the Building's defence is kept, in ruins, to give an insight...More
