Toledo is of pre-Roman origin; it fell to the Romans in 193B.C. A fortified city on a granite hill surrounded on three sides by a gorge of the Tagus River, with its chief landmark, the impressive El Alcázar (fortified palace) on the highest point of the city. In the beginning the Romans used it as a palace. It was largely destroyed in the 1936 Spanish civil war. After the war the fortress was again restored; today it houses the Army's offices and a museum. Other notable medieval architectures in Toledo include the Alcántara or Saint Martin's Bridge, De Loz Reyes Church, the Gothic Cathedral, etc.
