Toledo’s Historic Sites: Entering the City Through La Puerta del Sol

David’s Been Here is in the Castilla La Mancha city of Toledo, where David tours La Puerta del Sol, or the Gate of the Sun. This historic gate was built in the late 14th Century by the Knights Hospitaller and stood as the main entry point into the ancient city. The gate gets its name from the medallion located above the threshold, which once depicted a sun on one side, and a moon on the other. Now depicting the ordination of Toledo’s patron saint Ildephonsus, the sun and moon no longer exist- but the name still stands. Visit this important historical site during your tour of Toledo, and find all the city’s top sites in the David’s Been Here Guide to Castilla La Mancha- now available for your Kindle as well.
