This is one of the straightest streets in Toledo because it runs parallel to the old wall. It's named in honour of Emperor Charles V who was influential in turning Toledo into an imperial city as he made it his home for so long. There are a number of interesting buildings on the right-hand side of the road, among which number 9 is particularly significant because of its Neo-Mudejar architecture. It used to be the headquarters of Telefonica (The Spanish state phone company) but is now privately owned. On the left-hand side is the Alcázar (fortress and castle), which is reached by taking the stairs found in the wall. The centrally located Cuesta Carlos V near Zocodover is a popular street that attracts lots of tourists and locals alike.
