Marvel at this grand 19 m (62 ft) gate opened in 1827. Puerta de Toledo was originally ordered by Joseph Bonaparte. After the withdrawal of French troops from Spain, the construction continued, and the gate was finished under the rule of King Fernando VII. Admire the decoration that sits on top of each of the three neoclassical arches. Look for the coat of arms of Madrid and the allegory of Hispania, the national personification of Spain. Puerta de Toledo is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

  • Just a great sight to see if you are close. Wouldn't say that it's worth it to go out your way to go visit it, but if you are nearby it's definently worth it.  more »
  • At this puerta you have the chance to take a photo without all the other tourist you have e.g. at the Puerta de Alcala.  more »
