Admire the views and the craftsmanship on the gate which is located at the entrance of the city. Get there early to avoid the crowds.

It is just the old entry for the city. Just get there and take a picture to remember you are there. Lots of Asian tourist there... that means you won’t take a picture without someone’s head on. Go earlier if you want to enjoy it...More

Yet another impressive city gate in Toledo – set a few hundred metres up from the Bisagra Gate. There are quite good views over the new town from below its impressive arch.

I would say bus. It is a small city. All you have there is the Castle. All shopping and stores are there. Or take a cab. Parking is impossible and very limited.
