    This is the main plaza of the city. Buses to and from the train station and bus terminal stop here, fast food restaurants are here, and even a children's tourist train stops here.

    The plaza is built on the site of the ancient Arab market, and is very nice oasis with many trees.

    Plaza de Zocodovor is Toledo’s main square. It was a souk during Moorish rule and later the site of a weekly market. Nowadays it’s an elegant square full of cafes and restaurants. Most of the streets which lead to the main attractions in the old town start from the corners of the square.

    This 'triangular' square is near the highest point of the old city, in the north-east corner, just a few yards from the Alcazar. There are a number of cafes, and the buildings above appear to be mainly offices. The square is probably as near to a central focal point as you get in Toledo.

    It is another heart of the old city, if it is possible to speak of two hearts. It was rebuilt after the Civil War.

    Through the Arco de la Sangre one can see a bit of panoramic view, and behind the Arc there is a famous Museo de Santa Cruz.

    A view from Zocodover Square

    Plaza de Zocodover (Zocodover Square) is the main square of Toledo, and its very heart. It was the ancient Arabian market (zocodover means "place of animals"). It is a great place to start a city tour, or just take a seat an watch the life goes by...

    This is the main square of the city and a great place to people watch. It's an ideal place to take a break after visiting the Alcazar or the Cathedral and also a hub for catching the bus or riding a tourist train. It was built in the 17th century and has since become a gathering place for locals and tourists alike.

    I entered through an arched gateway leading into the square from the the steps and streets that wind up from the bridge below. When you arrive here, it feels like ground zero for this town, especially after huffing and puffing your way up the steep hill.

    Plaza Zocodover is the main square in the historic centre near the Alcazar. The buses go from here to the station. Also the Toy tourist train starts here.
