Looking down on the Plaza Mayor, Trujillo

Trujillo, Cacaeres, Extremadura, Spain view map

Trujillo is a Spanish city and municipality of 9086 inhabitants (INE Census, 2013), located in the province of Cáceres, Extremadura.
Originally settled on a granite knoll which was readily fortified, the town now extends to the South East of its original site. Trujillo is
both a centre for tourism, with over 25 hotels, and a regional market town.

The old town contains many medieval and renaissance buildings. Many of these were built or enriched by the conquistadors born in
the city. These include, the conquerors of Peru, Francisco Pizarro and his brothers, Francisco de Orellana and Hernando de Alarcón.
Pizarro's equestrian statue stands in the main square, the Plaza Mayor. The most important monuments are the castle (old Arab
fortress), the church of Santa María (thirteenth century), and the church of San Francisco. [Wikipedia]
