Horon Village is the largest town and one of the central hubs within Oracle of Seasons.


Horon Village can be found at the southern portion of Holodrum and is one of the first locations that Link will travel to on his journey. Link first enters the village from North Horon, located just to the north of the Village, as its name suggests. There are two other entrances to Horon Village. To the West, Link will find the Western Coast, and to the East, Link can reach the Eastern Suburbs.


At the center of the village, a Water Fountain can be found. Right next to the fountain itself Link will find a Painter. Unlike the majority of residents of Horon Village, the Painter will stay put at his location regardless of the changing seasons.[1]

Horon Village is filled with a variety of shops and residential homes, almost all of which are accessible the very first time Link enters the Village.
