Plaza del Torico, Teruel

4.0
#3 of 10 in Sightseeing in Teruel
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Torazoiii
  • There are tons of places to eat and drink in the nearby.
  • Good nighttime ambience.
