What To Expect

Mirador del Valle
Magnificent panoramic view of the city, from which the importance of this strategic enclave is understood, formed on a hill surrounded by the Tagus River, in the center of the Iberian Peninsula. From the viewpoint, we can enjoy the skyline dominated by the Alcázar and the Gothic Cathedral, also the Baroque church dedicated to San Ildefonso. Also noteworthy is the Castillo San Servando and the military academy, and of course the entire Toledo hamlet covering the rock in which the various bell towers of the many parish churches that emerge throughout the city stand out. Of interest are also the archaeological remains around the river of Arab baths or the industry and crafts of a glorious past.

Puerta de Alfonso VI
Example of Spanish-Muslim military architecture from the 10th century. Built in the second walled area to protect the suburbs. It was until the 16th century the main entrance to the city. The name it receives is due to the fact that it was through it that the Castilian King Alfonso VI, accompanied by the Cid Campeador, entered on May 6, 1085 to take the city from Islamic hands.

Plaza De Zocodover
The private walking tour will begin here. The nerve center of the city. It dates from the Andalusian medieval period, a moment that began to be dedicated to the commercial function, a function that has remained over time. With the Christian conquest the public and festive function is present and here receptions, bulls and other festivals are celebrated. The current configuration attends to a 16th century reform, when by order of King Felipe II, an attempt was made to homogenize the Castilian squares with balconies and arcades, surrounding its perimeter with taverns, inns and inns, a function that continues to be preserved today, with its current restaurants, bars and hotels, since then the busy atmosphere of the Plaza de Zocodover has been configured.
