Toledo Gate

Out of all of the wall’s gates, the one best preserved today is Toledo Gate, which was ordered to be built along the royal road from Toledo to Sevilla to the city’s north. The construction of Toledo Gate was completed in 1328, as indicated in an engraving found on it. It was declared a Spanish National Monument in 1915, and has been the focus of several interventions throughout its history due to typical problems with humidity, environmental conditions and microorganisms in the stone. The most recent restoration was completed in 2013 and included important findings, such as four sculpted busts in the keystones of the vaults when passing through the gate which date back to the time of its original construction, helping to date it.
