“Walk this bridge!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

If you do the short walk from the train station then this is the first opportunity you have to enter into the city. Its a short walk and worth it to get a feel for the old city (esp if you don't want to walk the bridge on the other side of the city). It makes a great photo for your entrance.

“Good landscape”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Walking from the train station, this gate is the entrance of the old city. The opposite site of the gate was a small hill. I climbed up the hill and took a good photo. The landscape was very good.

“A Roman bridge in Toledo.”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Believe it or not, this is a Roman bridge, making it apx. 2000 years old!
It's probably one of the first sights you'd see coming from the train station towards the city – and what a site it is!
While the bridge is lovely just to look at, don't miss a chance to walk on it over the Tagus into Toledo, from the east.
Recommended.

“A bridge which will last forever”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

The Roman stone Alcantara Bridge is one of three ways to cross the Tagus River and enter Toledo but the most impressive. You have to keep in mind it was built in 106 AD. The archway over the central pier and bears the inscription "Pontem perpetui mansurum in saecula" (I have built a bridge which will last forever) incription from the Roman Emperor Trajan.
