The Alcazar of Toledo Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Alcazar of Toledo

It is one of the two not to be missed visits of the "city of three cultures". Located in the higher part of the city, the Alcazar is visible from many places in Toledo. It is a square-shaped building structured around a large central yard. From the outside you will notice the large square towers in all 4 corners of the building and, of course, its impressive size. It was built during several stages of the Spanish Renaissance. It now houses the Army Museum and the Library of Castilla-La Mancha but previously had various other functions: originally there was a Roman palace on this site in the 3rd century, then it became the official residence of the kings of Spain (16th century), and later a defence and resistance stronghold during the Civil War, etc.
