Features and Overview

Twilight Princess

The Castle Town Central Square is the busiest section of Hyrule Castle Town in Twilight Princess. A fountain bearing the Hylian Crest rests in the middle, while a cafe bar can be found in the west portion of the Square. Near the cafe is an entrance to the Goron Trading Post with a viewing platform, where Link can view the entire Central Square as well as buy a variety of wares from Gorons.[8] Some musicians are situated near the entrance to Hyrule Castle, and farther back is a young Hylian, Soal, who will polish Link's shoes for just 10 Rupees, thus allowing the young hero to enter Chudley's Fine Goods and Fancy Trinkets Emporium.[9]

The cafe bar is one of Castle Town's oldest shops, so most of its customers are regulars.[10] The cafe bar does not play an important role in Link's journey, but he can visit the cafe bar to hear the latest gossip from its customer.[10] The customers at the cafe will also advise Link on which places to visit, such as the viewing platform to the side of the cafe or Fanadi's Palace.[11][12]

Breath of the Wild

The Central Square is located at the center of the Hyrule Castle Town Ruins in Hyrule Field in Breath of the Wild. It was once a place for rest, but became the starting grounds of the Guardians' rampage across Hyrule at the advent of the second Great Calamity.[13] The ruins of a large stone fountain featuring three large birds sits in the middle, marking the center of the Square and the surrounding Town Ruins.

A Korok Seed is given to Link for finishing a race that begins along the southern wall of the Hyrule Castle Town Ruins and ends just above the decimated fountain.
