Toledo and Segovia Tour with Alcazar Entrance from Madrid

1,015 reviews
Visiting both Toledo and Segovia in a day from Madrid is near impossible without a car rental and some serious time management. On this trip, you get to see both cities as a guide charts their history, minus the stress of organizing transport. Plus, you’re certain of seeing the key sights, including Toledo’s Primada Cathedral, and Segovia’s Roman aqueduct and Alcazar. Ideal if you’re pressed for time and want a day out of Madrid.

A grand open space in the middle of Madrid, the Plaza de Colón honors Christopher Columbus and offers grand views and pleasant strolling spaces. During our visit, we enjoyed a temporary installation by Jaume Plensa, a huge (40 ft. high) white statue titled “Julia,” a girl with eyes closed. There is a monument to Colon near the Paseo de la Castellana and concrete sculptures with inscriptions by philosophers and indigenous leaders facing Calle Serrano. There is a very large (reputedly the biggest) Spanish flag flying in the middle of the square. There are fountains and gardens (Jardines del Descubrimiento), and under the plaza is the city of Madrid’s Cultural Centre. The plaza offers great views of the impressive twin Torres de Colón, on the other side of the Paseo de la Castellana.

The name of Cristóbal Colón has been filled with controversy over the last few decades, not to mention with the fact of the Conquest of the new continent of Americas and the conflict and slaughter of the Amerindian peoples. However, this kind of criticism doesn not take into account the courage and sense of adventure of those last crusaders of the XV century, who brought a whole new perspective to the culture and world vision for Europe and the world as a whole. The very nice plaza Colón pays a fair hommage to one of the greatest explorers of human History. A must go in Madrid!

This is where Calle de Recoletos becomes the Paseo de la Castelana, crossed by a few other streets, and forming an impressive traffic oval rather than "circle", around the Monument dedicated to Cristobal Colon. It is located in the Northern neighbourhood of Madrid, where the modern architecture tends to take ove the historical buildings.

Simple but impressive place for a short visit. One of the biggest national flags - and strange head figures - in Europe are here.
