The view from this location is amazing. The gate itself is nothing amazing, but the setting and the view from its location is absolutely worth the walk to the gate..

This gate is a wonderful introduction to the city of Toledo. It is just incredible to me that something this old has survived for so long intact.

It is just the old entry for the city. Just get there and take a picture to remember you are there. Lots of Asian tourist there... that means you won’t take a picture without someone’s head on. Go earlier if you want to enjoy it...More

Walking is THE best way to see the sights, the narrow streets and little shops. Most of the attractions are close enough to walk. If you want to visit the Alcantara bridge and you're on the west part of Toledo like at... More
