Well worth a visit, but it needs more than just an hour as there is a lot to see. If you are interesting in military stuff this is the place worth a visit. Lots of displays and plenty to look at, plus walking over the glass companionway which crosses some of the old walls.

Probably the most beautiful and emblematic building in Toledo, recently restored. Great views and some interesting historic facts. However the Army museum is a nightmare to follow, the curators overcomplicated the experience and, for non-Spaniards, will be wasted in vast parts.

The museum has a great collection of armors from the Medinacelli collection. It is full or uniforms, swords, cannons, etc. My teen age son had a great time in a museum (for a change).

We came here and were short of time so did not do this justice.The whole site is impressive and the the ruins underneath were captivating.We really enjoyed our visit but did not see most of it because of time restraints.I would love to spend a longer time here if i was ever in the area again

I liked the Cervantes' exposition and it was interesting to see all of the armors and weapons of the Spanish armada over the centuries.

Built along a river and high up you can understand this being a fortress .River to the back and a deep gorge in the front entrance.
