    Worth Seeing
    This was the first stop on our private tour. Absolutely terrific views and scenery. The Tagus river, which our guide told us was the longest river on the Iberian Peninsula was a great place for photos with the town in the background. I highly recommend going to Toledo. We took a full day tour, it was wonderful.

    Cool Roman bridge
    The San Martin Bridge is a bridge over the Tagus River that connects old Toledo to the rest of the city. It is an old Roman bridge that is for pedestrian use only. I highly recommend walking across the San Martin bridge!

I slowly followed the progression of our group crossing the medieval Puente de San Martin or Bridge of San Martin, that spanned the Tagus River, to find our bus. I didn't want to rush this experience. The bridge was constructed in the late 14th century by archbishop Pedro Tenorio to provide access to the town of Toledo from the west. I took my time grabbing as many last shots to best remember this ancient multicultural hilltop city.

We made our way over to the bridge as we had time and I like old architecture. This is well cared for. The zip line right next door was busy but not unduly so, adults and kids seemed to enjoy the quick trip across.

A super beautiful medieval bridge. This lovely bridge was constructed in the Middle Ages and dating to around the 13th century. Both sides of the bridge were heavily fortified with towers, the more recent dating from the 16th century. It is worth taking the time to reach this bridge. You can enjoy really beautiful views from here. A wonderful place to spend time. Undoubtedly a place worth visiting when traveling to Toledo.

If you come from the train station make sure you turn left at the roundabout between the station and town and walk along the river. After a few minutes walking you will see this old pedestrian bridge which is the best way to come into Toledo and sets the scene for a fabulous day. The bridge is lovely and the view is not bad either. Once over the bridge there are stairs to climb or if you want to avoid the stairs turn right and walk along the road that climbs to the left. After a short distance on the left there is what looks like an entrance to an underground car park - which indeed it is but it is also the entrance to escalators that take you to the top of the hill.

The San martin bridge, (Puente de San Martín) is the larger medieval bridge that crosses the Tagus River in the south western side of Toledo.

Not to be confused with the smaller Alcantara Bridge with has similar looking towers and arches and lies on the opposite side of the city.

The bridge was constructed in the late 14th century by Archbishop Pedro Tenorio to provide access to the old town from the west.

Our guided day tour ended, at this magnificent structure.

The Bridge of San Martin was named for the nearby parish of San Martin, the patron saint of soldiers. As the second of only two bridges that allowed entry into fortress Toledo, it was built mainly to transport heavy stones from quarries in the west for construction of Toledo's important buildings. One has to admire the wide center span and the strength of the bridge. The tower at the west end of the bridge was built in the 13th century, and the one on the city side was built in the 16th century. One can feel sympathy with any army that planned to attack Toledo via this western bridge, having to conquer two high towers and the walls in order to gain access to the city. Because the bridge is so old and so involved in Toledo's history, it has been designated a national monument. The bridge itself is a postcard-view with the deep gorge and River Tajo underneath it and the city of Toledo behind it. But the view from the city looking toward the opposite bank of the river is also scenic. It is a beautiful way to enter or leave the city..
