The Alcazar is the definitive and dominant feature of the old town of Toledo. It is both imposing and spectacular, if a challenge to capture it properly in a photo other from at a distance other side of the Tagus. The interior therefore comes as...More

Lovely building and the inside is quite impressive, although not quite what we were expecting, other reviews on TA warned about the military aspects! Yes quite a bit devoted to wars, army and the military in some detail! But plenty of room to move at...More

It was a surprise that it had been converted into a military museum and no doubt it would be of interest to many. We enjoyed the views though and had a great visit to Toledo and Segovia thanks to Amigo Tours.

This huge former castle is a mainly military museum, with lots of exhibits including vast armies of tin toy soldiers and real artillery pieces and even a helicopter. We only saw a small part of the vast exhibitions. All exhibits are beautifully displayed. But for...More

We visited the Alcazar today. Unfortunately, I was expecting more of an ancient castle/fortress. Instead, that building was destroyed in the civil war. It is a Spanish military history museum now. While interesting it not something that resonates with a non Spanish person that is...More

I am not sure. I went by car, but in Zocodover square there is information about public transport and a train that goes around the Alcázar. Moreover, there is a bus station nearby the square. I hope that helps you.
