Where can I best see the Three Kings Parade in Toledo?
Any location is good on the route: Avenida Barber will give you a wide route and plenty of space; at Reconquista, especially at the top of the avenue you will have a great view of the entire route; at Puerta de Bisagra you will have a very good environment for taking photographs and at Plaza de Zocodover you will be able to watch the fireworks at the end of the route.
What we do recommend is to arrive well in advance, especially if you go by car and want to park in Toledo. Don’t be late, lots of people attend the cavalcade in Toledo!
