Create an itinerary including Puerta de Bisagra
Cross through Puerta de Bisagra to see how it looks from both inside and outside the city, and to appreciate its interior. This mighty gate is of Moorish origin but was rebuilt in the 16th century, not for defensive purposes, but to demonstrate the great power of the emperor. On the city side, look for the doubled-headed eagle that is the focal point of the coat of arms for Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor. On the outer side, look for city’s coat of arms. Be careful: The gate faces a busy roundabout. Plan to see Puerta de Bisagra and other attractions that appeal to you using our Toledo attractions tool.

  • It’s not hard to find this historic and attractive old gate as it is situated by the main roundabout and car parks for those visiting the old town. Well worth a look.

  • Beautiful place to visit. Make sure you plan your visit by knowing where to park and locating the escalators to go up and down to the top of Toledo. The walk can be challenging.
  • The Puerta de Bisagra is a city gate of Toledo, Spain. The structure was constructed in the 10th century, in the time of the Moorish Taifa of Toledo in Islamic Al-Andalus. It is also called 'Bisagra Antigua' to distinguish it from the Puerta de Bisagra Nueva which was built in 1559.
