Plaza del potro

Situated in the district of the Axerquia, the square gets its name from the Renaissance fountain in the middle, whose main decorative feature is the figure of a potro (colt).

Traditionally, the square was a place where cattle were bought and sold, and artisans worked, as can be seen from the famous Posada (inn), which bears the same name. On the other side of the square are the Fine Arts Museum and the Julio Romero de Torres Museum.
