City of Alcazar Toledo

Alcazar toledo sm

Population: 19,500

Alcazar Toledo is built upon ancient dwarven ruins. The Block is an enigmatic legacy from the now long-dead civilization of dwarves. These clans retreated underground and permanently sealed the exit behind them, but left several grand structures behind. The great stone building now referred to as The Block is a building whose purpose is unknown. It holds five unusual levels, each is divided in half, and slopes upwards or downwards depending on which side you are on. Hence, one can travel from the ground level to the roof by advancing on the switch-back ramp-like angled floors.

The Grand Approach is the only access to the city from the north. It is a long ramp leading from King’s High Way (the road was built eons after the dwarves left. Visitors climb The Approach up to a great gate, then pass over a double draw bridge over the Rio Toledo, through another stronghold gate and finally into The Block.

The current residents use The Block as tenement housing. The sloped floors are troublesome, but the poor can enjoy the shelter of a mostly solid, dwarven structure – a roof over their heads. The road winds down through, and past, their sloped homes. Many of these poor peasants set up stalls to sell handiworks or other goods to travelers passing by. Fruit and vegetables are commonly sold here as well. Visitors may certainly buy better quality items down in the town proper, but here in The Block, everything can be had very inexpensively.
