A cigarral is a private estate in Toledo located on the area surrounding the city on the other side of the river. It perhaps owes its name to the many singing cicadas (cigarras in Spanish) found in summertime, and consists of a large, several-story home with garden and orchard. The house is usually quite humble, between rustic and conventional, with white walls and surrounded by terraces and patios. With beautiful lilacs, lilies, irises and the setting in general, the cigarral is highly valued in the Imperial City of Toledo. Illustrious people such as Gregorio Maranon have lived in some of Toledo's cigarrales at one point or another. In Zocodover Square you can take a mini-train (tren turistico) for a tour of the area.
