Plaza del Torico


Wandering around Teruel you're bound to arrive before long at this gently sloping, cafe-lined plaza that is the unquestioned centre of town. At its lower end the city's symbol, a tiny bronze bull called El Torico, just 35cm high and of unknown authorship, has stood on top of its tall stone column since 1865.
