Plaza de Zocodover, Toledo
(3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Fulcrum tolediano but I expected a little more. To nothing as beautiful as the whole town, perhaps too "modern" or the fastfood that rovianno the atmosphere. Passing through.
