"People from all over the place come to Hyrule Town for the Picori Festival."

Hyrule Town is a location from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Located in the very center of Hyrule, this town is large and busy and is home to the annual Picori Festival and the festivities surrounding it. The mayor of Hyrule Town is Mayor Hagen, and it is the largest settlement in the country. Although mainly inhabited by Hylians, both Gorons, Minish, and others reside here as well. Link visits Hyrule Town often during his quest, both to stock up on items in the stores and to receive mandatory items like the Power Bracelets and the Pegasus Boots.
