This square was occupied by nobles in the Middle Ages, though in the 19th century it was used as both a riding school and even a bullring. It has three 14th century entrances corresponding to three different palaces. One of the most impressive belongs to King Peter the Cruel's palace, in Mudejar style. The second is the entrance to the palace of Suero Tellez de Meneses, governor of Toledo, who had it built in the first half of the 14th century, though it was never finished and is now walled up. At present this palace houses the offices of the Seminario Menor de Santo Tomas de Villanueva seminary, with the entrance in the Plaza de San Andres. The third is another noteworthy example of Mudejar style and it leads to the Convento de Convento de Santa Isabel.
