Overview

The Puerta del Sol was once the principal gateway into the ancient walled city of Toledo. It leads directly to the Puerta de Bisagra and the Cristo de la Luz Mosque. It was originally built at the end of the 10th or the beginning of the 11th centuries but most of what we see today dates from the 14th. It is made up of various connected Moorish-style archways in stone and brick. It was previously known as the gateway of Herrería and San Ildefonso and takes its current name from the 18th century depiction of the sun and the moon in the center of a triangular shield on the first arch.
