Alcázar de Toledo
Author: Julie Thompson | Last Updated: 14 Dec 2019
The Alcazar de Toledo is a structure built at the highest point of Toledo. When looking from scenic viewpoints such as the Mirador del Valle or the bell tower at the Catedral Primada, the Alcazar stands above the rest of the city. This tourist attraction was once a palace and was designed during the Roman construction in the city. Unfortunately, a large portion of the original structure has been remodeled after damages received during the Spanish Civil War at the Siege of the Alcazar. Today the Alcazar is the home of Toledo’s Army Museum and features a variety of exhibits showcasing the army throughout the ages.
The Alcazar de Toledo is open every day of the week except for Mondays. On Sundays, admission is free, while children are admitted to the museum and Alcazar free every day. There is a nominal admission fee for visitors, and some people qualify for the reduced admissions fee.
