Beautiful Views
Dec 2019
One of the historically important gates of Toledo, location is great and provides beautiful views.
On its own the gate has architectural significance, but for tourists its mainly a nice spot to take photos.

Iconic and emblematic structure representing the blending of three cultures in this mediaeval city.
Oct 2019
Perhaps my favorite single structure in the city, competing with the other gates and bridges associated with the concentric walls and the cobblestone roads of the old city. Well light every night and situated as a lookout toward the North of the city with a view of the Tagus river and the humble city sector formerly know for pottery and the city access to the Tagus river bed.

We made our entrance through this gate, but first we visited the tourist office which is in the park opposite the gate. Then we got a free map, which is recommended.

Monumental Gate
Jul 2019 • Solo
The Puerta del Sol is one of the old city gate and fortifications of Toledo built in the late 14th century by the Knights Hospitaller after the reconquest. Just above the arch of the gate is a medallion above the arch of the gate depicts the ordination of the Saint Ildephonsus.

The gate is truly monumental and gets it's name from the sun and the moon that were once painted on either side of this medallion. Worth seeing if in Toledo.

Fantastic views from here
Oct 2018 • Couples
The gate was not the most impressive, but we may feel that way because we are probably comparing it to the lovely Toledo Bisagra Gate.
In saying that, we are very pleased we went to the Puerta del Sol as the views from here are superb and a joy to see.

Beautiful view from the Puerta del Sol

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..
