Summary

The nerve centre of the city, the Plaza del Coso is the oldest in the city and was used to hold markets, festivals, races, executions and military parades up to the construction of the Plaza Nueva in 1618.

Plaza del Coso was located alongside the walled belt which belonged to the old town and which formed part of the Palace and Castle of Medinaceli.

The southern corner of the square features the bronze statue of a boy with a shell dating from the late 18th century, depicting the god Attis, originally adorning a corner of the gardens of the Palace of Medinaceli. The paving of the square also features an image of the city's coat-of-arms, a work from around the year 1953.
