Toledo and Segovia Tour with Alcazar Entrance from Madrid

1,016 reviews
Visiting both Toledo and Segovia in a day from Madrid is near impossible without a car rental and some serious time management. On this trip, you get to see both cities as a guide charts their history, minus the stress of organizing transport. Plus, you’re certain of seeing the key sights, including Toledo’s Primada Cathedral, and Segovia’s Roman aqueduct and Alcazar. Ideal if you’re pressed for time and want a day out of Madrid.
US$75.00 per adult

This is a modern square in the northern part of Castellana. It has two amazing inclined skyscrapers at the left and right side. Also, there is an obelisk by the famous Spanish architect, Calatrava. The views are spectacular!

Plaza Castilla and its surroundings are the Madrid financial area. La Puerta de Europa is an unusual combination of the modern square (turnabout) and the surprising leaning buildings of Bankia y Realia over Paseo La Castellana. A little further north, there is the Cuatro Torres Business Area, which consists of four astonishing and beautiful skyscrapers that are the tallest buildings in Madrid and Spain. The four buildings are Torre Cepsa, Torre PwC, Torre de Cristal and Torre Espacio, all of them built between 2004 and 2009. The Crystal Tower is the highest in Madrid and Spain at 249 meters high. To visit all these, walk along Paseo La Castellana from Plaza Castilla up north up to Las Cuatro Torres. You might stop in a restaurant to have lunch or have a beer to rest for a while.

My hotel was located here in walking distance to the Metro and buses, in a great area. Lot's of stores, coffee shops and restaurants. Very safe and easy to move around.

Plaza de Castilla is a nice square with some very interesting buildings. The architecture is quite unusual. The area is quite modern and there are several good shops around.

To show oneself that one can get out of downtown and the tourist web, check out how real Madrileños live and realize that Madrid, like other cities Is moving quickly into the XXI century. Plaza de Castilla is all of this. It is a cacophony of styles, from the monument to Calvo Sotelo or the obelisk by Calatrava on to the Puerta de Europa by P. Johnson.or the Deposito de Plaza de Castilla and the Fundacion Canal. Just south of the plaza (one block) the Instituto National de Estadistica stands out with its colorful panels. Just North, within easy walking distance the Cuatro Torres stand out on the close horizon. A different Madrid worth seeing nonetheless: history in the peresent tense.
