Summary

From the Barrio Nuevo square, and via the Cuesta de Santa Ana the vantage point of Roca Tarpeya is reached, a mythical space in Toledo from where, it is said, the Romans would throw those sentenced to their deaths, following an ancestral custom.

Around Roca Tarpeya, where today the Victorio Macho Museum was erected, there was also a small Jewish core, called the Bab Alfarach District where the Gate of Alfarach or Consolación was located in an environment with some enviable views over the Tagus and the country houses on the other side of the river.
