Puerta de Toledo represents one of the nineteen city gates that had the Walls of Philip IV. Annoyingly it sits in the middle of a roundabout, though there's no need to cross it to get up close as it's quite a small roundabout. The gate...More

An impressive arch structure part of the old wall of Madrid. Not sure it’s worth a specific visit but if you’re passing it’s worth a photo. It’s in the middle of a roundabout though so the area is very busy with traffic.

This is a large triumphal arch completed in 1827 and set in an impressive position but is not easily accessible due to the traffic. Not much else to see in the area.

Puerta de Toledo is smaller than the Puerta Alcala and not as impressive. Again it is located on a roundabout, the tour bus will go past but this is the smaller historical gate to the city.

The gate used to be part of a wall around Madrid. Not a defensive wall, more like a demarcation line in which taxes had to be paid. The walls have gone, the gate and the taxes are still there.
