Castillo de San Servando
The Castillo de San Servando is what remains of part of Toledo's defences and is reached by crossing the Alcántara Bridge. There were fortifications as far back as the Moslem era and probably in Visigothic times too. When Alfonso VI took the city in 1085 he built the castle on the ruins of older buildings. Two further reconstructions have taken place, one in the 12th century and again in 1380. The final rebuilding incorporated Arabic elements including a large central square and turrets. Castilla La Mancha's first regional government chamber was established here in 1983. Nowadays, the castle contains a youth hostel and is only open to members.
