Plaza del Torico, Teruel

4.0
The main plaza for the old town of Teruel, Plaza del Torico is a legendary spot. Legend has it that Alfonso II of Aragón followed a small bull to where the plaza now stands and founded the city. The fountain in the center of the plaza pays homage to this legend depicting bulls’ heads that spurt water. The square's architecture blends Art Deco with neoclassical and is a pleasant backdrop to enjoying a coffee at one of the many cafes. Our Teruel trip planner makes visiting Plaza del Torico and other Teruel attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • After the surprise seeing the size of the O-ring, I can only say that it is a great small o-ring, is a cucada square, Manor, throughout history it, a pleasant surprise, recommended at night by lighting and day to see it full of life and bustle

  • For many years did not return to Teruel, you can't visit Teruel and not go through it, with modernist buildings, formerly it was full of gifts, souvenirs, knives, knives, tents... Although there are now only coffee shops and banks. There is a train which departs from it to visit all Teruel in 45 minutes approximately

  • A quite enjoyable extravaganza for the rookie voyager: the square offers rich architechtural samples of many centuries, where the star of the show seems to be a pretty small bull over an overdisized column. Do let yourself abandone to the hedonist pleasure of watching it all from a different table every day: the square offers at least four terraces for food and drinks.
  • Cosy place to have lunche
  • Lovely plaza in Teruel. Still trying to figure it why the bull is so small... But definitely worth a visit, especially when the festival of the amantes de Teruel is on.
  • Popular place to have diner and eat tapas, lots of restaurants.
  • Stunning and lots todo for a place of its size.
