Seeing this ancient walls was for me a sign that I have arrived at another era, an ancient city. Our drop off was way below the walls and getting to the top where the city began was an interesting accent. The wall themselves are imposing and magnificent.

Don't miss walking through this beautiful gateway. Take your time and be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Every alley is a delight to explore.

Toledo, going back to the Romans, was always meant to be a fortress. The successive generations of strata of foundations for which are on display in in the Alcazar. I believe you must experience the formidability of the walls from the outside( using the on/off bus, the bridges, or the circle park at the base) as well as the top of the walls for which there is an elevator. Then you will get a clear understanding of how Toledo was a strategic lynchpin to Iberia all the way up to the Spanish Civil War.

Muralla de Toledo, generally translated as the Walls of Toledo have existed since Roman times.

Surrounding the old town itself is on a steep rocky outcrop and naturally fortified by the deep Tagus River which also helped to serve as a natural defense during medieval times.

Among the most important gates are; Alfonso VI, Alcantara and the Twelve Songs. The two main bridges being the San Martin and Alcantara.

A series of escalators will get you up into the city, or if you prefer some exercise, you can take the manual stairs just on the right.

This area was part of our overall guided tour of this magnificent historical district.
Only the outer walls and views, are free to the public.

Beautiful town, that has a lot of interesting places, plenty of very nice little stores. this town deserves at least 2 days for you to hang out and enjoy the middle age atmosphere.
If you go to Madrid and didn't visit Toledo you're missing hanlf of Madrid history.

Toledo’s City Walls were originally constructed by Romans, meaning 2,000 years ago. Visigoths subsequently expanded the fortifications and expanded the city walls, as did Arabs/Moors from North Africa with their invasion in 711AD. This particular site is the best preserved City Wall—“Muralla”. (Notice the Latin root of mural?) The Wall and arch/gate are adjacent to Alcántara Bridge and Gate. What is called a gate in Europe is an opening in the city wall, and at one time each arch utilized gates at either end of the arch. The purpose of the parapets atop the arch was to dump burning coals on the heads of invaders. Gruesome, but effective☺

Stunning preserved ancient walls linking the gates of the city. Amazing views to be had from above. Probably one of the best walls in all the old cities we saw in Spain

Our walk around the city was pleasant. There were times we came closer to the city walls and others passing through narrow lanes.

The walls can be viewed from several points but there is a lot of walking up and downhill.

Be assured to have flat shoes on.

The Walls of this City are both functional and spectacular. The walls can be seen from a great distance and the closer you get the more intimidating they appear. The city would not be itself without the walls.

One of Spain's absolute best preserved city walls with many beautiful gates. It's like being moved back to the Middle Ages.
