29 Puerta del Sol in Toledo, Spain

Puerta del Sol was the northern entrance to the medieval city of Toledo. Some believe it was constructed during the 14th century while others contest it dates back to the 10th century. What is known is the Sun Gate was heavily fortified by command of Archbishop Pedro Tenorio at the end of the 14th century. This back view shows sections of the semicircular and quadrangular towers flanking the center section. All are crowned by battlements.
