- This article is about the town found in The Minish Cap. For the town found in other games, see Castle Town.
Hyrule Town is the main hub in The Minish Cap. It is much like Castle Town from other The Legend of Zelda installments. It is a large, bustling town that surrounds Hyrule Castle, and it is filled with shops, houses and useful characters. Four areas lead to Castle Town: North Hyrule Field to the north, South Hyrule Field to the south, Trilby Highlands to the west, and Lon Lon Ranch to the east. Once a year, the Picori Festival is held here, which Link and Zelda attend at the beginning of the game.
- There is a Piece of Heart behind the motel that is accessible only in Link's Minish form. Link must shrink to Minish size in the house at the southeast of Hyrule Town, climb the small vine to the northeast and walk around behind the motel. He can enter here, and grow back to human size to obtain the Piece of Heart.
- Completing the mini-game found in the building with a purple ghost on top of it results in a Piece of Heart. This can only be done after Link has completed the Fortress of Winds.
- In the Minish hole behind the fountain, there is a stream Link can swim across once he has the Flippers. There is a Piece of Heart on the opposite side of the stream.
- Link can obtain a Piece of Heart by completing every level of Anju's Cucco game. The Flippers are required for the last round.
- Once Link has the Four Sword, he can obtain a Piece of Heart that is in the Minish pathway in the schoolyard. He must split into four Links to push the stone forward, granting him access to the Heart Piece along with a couple of treasure chests.
- When Link receives the Carlov Medal, he can show it to the man on the left of the cafe. He will open his house, and within it, there is a Piece of Heart.
- At the beginning of the game, Link obtains his Shield here from the merchant on the bottom-right. He is running a game for the Picori Festival which Princess Zelda happens to win. She is able to decide between a Heart Container, a Big Red Rupee and a Shield as her prize. She chooses the shield and gives it to Link.
