Overview

Toledo's hilltop fortress, the Alcạr, dominates the city. The Romans, Visigoths and Arabs all built fortifications on this site. Alfonso VI established himself here when he conquered Toledo for the Christians in 1085. In 1535, following the reconstruction of the fortress, Charles I of Spain took up residence. Since then, the Alcạr has been destroyed and rebuilt on several occasions, most recently in 1936 when one of the most famous incidents of the Spanish Civil War took place here. It was finally restored during the 1950's and now houses a library (biblioteca regional) and the Military Museum which contains an important collection of arms, uniforms and models of important historical battles.
