Puerta da Cambron received its name from the spiny buckthorn bushes all around it which are known as cambroneras.

The current structure is of Renaissance style with coats of arms of the city to the outside, and of Felipe II to the interior. It has a square floor plan and was built over the remains of the Visigoth gate.

The current version dates back to 1576. It has Renaissance facades with coats of arms of the city to the outside, and of Felipe II to the interior. It has an image of Santa Leocadia, patron saint of Toledo.

Its a rather pretty structure and we had lunch nearby.

We stopped at the northwestern gate of Toledo, the Puerta de Cambron. Our guide told us that it was previously called the Gate of the Jews or the Gate of Saint Leocadia.

This massive gate has two pairs of towers and two arches. It was renovated in the 1570s!

Puerta del Cambron is one of the city gates of Toledo. The name probably comes from a thorn shrub or plant that grew in its surroundings. The last rebuilding, in the Renaissance style, took place in 1576. A lovely place to visit.

Yet another impressive structure we saw during our time in Toledo.
This has four towers and we were given to understand that the doors are the original ones! That's difficult to imagine.
There are great views from here too.

This gate replaced and earlier Moorish construction. It dates from 1576 and was built on a square base with an interior patio surrounded by four towers covered by slate capitals. The gates have the coats of arms of the city and of Felipe II. On the interior façade there is a statue of Santa Leocadia . This is the only gate open to motor traffic.

This gate is also known as "Gate of the Jews" as it enters into the Jewish section of Toledo. I have no idea when it was constructed but in 1576, there was work done on it. It is a beautiful gate with four towers and lovely arches that can be seen from inside.

Also known as the “Gate of the Jews”, the Cambron gate is a fine, strong, beautiful example of 16th century architecture – and is still used (by pedestrians and motor vehicles) today. It even has its original doors.

There’s a fine view over the countryside from just outside the gate, whilst – inside – there are some pleasant café restaurants where you can sit and watch the world (well, a few people and cars, at least) go by ….

Located close to the Jewish quarter, this is one of the oldest gates to the city dating back to the Visigoth period. The current gate is a 16th century reconstruction on the remains of the original one.

It is a large gate with the portal wide enough to allow cars to pass through and probably the only one open to vehicular traffic. It was also known as the Gate of the Jews owing to its proximity to the Jewish quarter. The gate owes its current name to thorny bushes around it known locally as cambroneras.

Built of stone and masonry, the gate follows a square plan with a square tower in each corner. The renaissance style arches are topped by a statue and a coat of arms.

The gate was originally intended as a defensive structure as evidenced by its crenelated roof, high lookout windows and strong iron covered doors.

The gate is beautiful, well preserved and definitely worth a visit.

This is a lovely site in Toledo. I stumbled upon it on my way from the Jewish Quarter to the train station (long way round). It is lovely, but not worthy of a special trip.

The gate is quite lovely, marred only by the amount of traffic trying to pass by. Be attentive if you get caught up in the architectural details while passing through he gate as the drivers seem equally distracted! Still - an important part of Toledo history that is worth seeing!
