Plaza María de Toledo is a charming and tranquil public square situated between Isabel La Catolica and las Damas Street in the colonial city of Santo Domingo, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The square is named after María de Toledo, the wife of Diego Columbus, the son of Christopher Columbus, who was the first Viceroy of the Indies. María de Toledo was a strong advocate for the rights of the indigenous Taino people and played a significant role in the social and cultural development of the early Spanish colony.

The square features a statue of María de Toledo, which was originally located on the side lawn of the Alcazar de Colón in Plaza Espana but was moved to Plaza María de Toledo when the plaza was renovated in 2017. The brick-tiled plaza is surrounded by significant landmarks such as the Pantheon of the Fatherland, the final resting place of many of the Dominican Republic’s most prominent historical figures, and the Church of the Jesuits, a historic church that now serves as a museum.

Visitors to Plaza María de Toledo can relax on the benches that line the courtyard and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the square. Every Sunday, a small Antique Market is held in the plaza, where vendors sell a variety of interesting trinkets, including antiques, Taino artifacts, brass pieces, and jewelry.
