Alcazar, Toledo: 48 reviews and 138 photos


from a distant view the scenery is impressive
an impressive building found at the highest point of the city. In the beginning, the Romans used it as a palace. After the Christians reconstructed.

It's façades are all distinct according to the time period and style.

Facts: The western façade is of renaissance form; while the eastern one is medieval with three cylindrical battlement towers and merlon defenses. The northern one is plateresc; and the southern one was erected by Juan of Herrera, and is of churrigueresco style, and it also possesses a two story patio with Corinthian styled capitals. Later on it would be completely reconstructed, and today it houses the Army?s offices and a museum.
