Plaza de Zocodover Tours

Your first proper stop in Toledo may very well be the city’s main plaza, Plaza de Zocodover, as it receives visitors not far from the northern entrance to the city. The plaza has served as Toledo’s main square for pretty much all of the city’s history, and has been the site of bullfights, executions, and an important market for which the plaza was named.

Indeed, the word Zocodover has Arabic origins, meaning mercado de las bestias de carga, or, loosely, livestock market. That’s because, during those times, the plaza was home to a regular market that sold animals such as horses and donkeys. These days, apart from being one of the city’s biggest tourist attractions, the plaza also hosts concerts and events, thus continuing to be the center of local life.

Practical Info

The plaza is just steps away from the city’s biggest sights, including the cathedral, and the Alcazar along with the Military Museum that resides within it. Note that there’s a tourism office in Plaza Zocodover, where you can get a map to plot out your Toledo visit.
