“Very Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Stroll around Toledo City entrances and in particular enjoy the buildings at Bisagra gate. Very impressive. Some visitors might take a bus or taxi into the city, but they would miss the opportunity to inspect close-up the entrance gates. The Bisagra gate is a fine example of Toledo´s history.

“Impressive gate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Puerta Bisagra welcome visitors coming to the Toledo old town from the north. Imposing, thick walls, accompanied by two picturesque towers. Three entrances - two now used by cars, and the middle one only for pedestrians. Nice site to have a stroll there during your visit to Toledo.

“Impressive entrance to the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 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 stars Reviewed October 24, 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 stars Reviewed September 26, 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.
