Plaza de Zocodover, Toledo

(900+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
Plaza de Zocodover has been the heart of Toledo since medieval times. Throughout its long history, it's served as an open-air market, bull running arena, and center of the Spanish Inquisition. Its name comes from the Arabic “Souk al-Dawab,” or market of the beasts of burden, a holdover from its time as a livestock market for the Moors. Today, you'll find outdoor cafes, tourist information, bus and taxi stands, a play area, and many narrow streets branching off into the city. It's a good place to have a drink and watch the hustle and bustle of daily life in Toledo. The tourist train that leaves from the plaza offers views of the ancient city unavailable by car or public transport.

  • It is the heart of the city. It is easy to get lost in the back streets of this city, but we can find its way through the square of Zocodover. She is always full of people. But where to grab a bite? The people found in the coffee room, or even in McDonald's or Burger King tight one against the other. But aside from the food, terraces are not even clean. But what if this is where people gather?

  • Point of all departures, bustling world, departure and arrival of the bus and the train. Nice view of Arco sangre.

  • It has historically been and continues to be the center of the life of the city in all directions: is the meeting place and the point of departure for all routes in the city.
