Paseo de la Granja - Toledo, Spain

Avenida de la Reconquista, Toledo, Spain 45004Map
Neighborhood: La Reconquista

To the left of the Diputacion Provincial (Provincial Parliament) of Toledo building is a narrow street which leads to the La Granja viewpoint. This avenue was landscaped in 1944, on wasteland in the old La Granja area. The area, between the Roman and Medieval walls, comprised three long, parallel streets joined by raised passageways and was abandoned in the 17th century. After the Paseo de la Granja was developed, the Health Department building was built on the site of what was the best Renaissance style palace in the city, which was set on fire and pillaged by French troops in 1808. Centrally located, it's very popular with tourists and close to the plaza de Zocodover and the Puerta de Bisagra.
