Description

The aim of this tour is to show you the inside of this impressive building constructed to protect Toledo in the Islamic period. Follow the expert guide to get a fully understanding of the Alcazar by exploring the most interesting rooms. The archaeological remains are already visible from the entrance of the building. Explore an old cistern with two millennia of history, the walls of the Arab Alcazar, the remains of a tower from the 14th century. Thanks to the pictures and displays, imagine how the alcazar was in the past during different eras: a roman pretorio, an islamic fortress and an old palace, destroyed in the 16th century to built a new renaissance palace. Since the year 2009, it houses The National Museum of the Spanish Army. Walk among old military objects like clothes, cannons and swords of singular beauty belonging to characters of Spanish history. Visit an old Armor collection recently donated to Museum. Shudder at the Moscardo’s office, the only room which was not renovated after the Spanish Civil War. Listen to the well-known story about the General Moscardo and the conversation with his son. At the end of the tour, enjoy the views from the northern parade of the Alcazar. See the landscape around this emblematic building and admire its exquisite renaissance façade.
