Named after Diego Columbus’s wife, niece of King Ferdinand of Spain, Plaza María de Toledo is a delightful courtyard with a fountain and benches where you can take respite from walks around the Colonial City. Recently renovated, it stretches between two major streets, Calle Isabela La Católica and Calle Las Damas, and is surrounded with colonial buildings. It is a favorite of couples who come here for a quiet moment in the middle of an otherwise bustling neighborhood.
