Situated in western Spain, just over two hours’ drive Madrid, Trujillo is a captivating historic town known for its range of cultural influences. The town’s origins are in the prehistoric era, built up from a deep granite batholith. Later, it passed hands between Romans, Muslims, and Spanish, and the unique characteristics of these nations have left their marks on numerous sites. In the 16th century, Spanish conquistadors settled here and created two of the town’s most popular attractions: the fascinating Pizzaro House (now a museum), and the romantic Plaza Major, fringed by exquisite Baroque and Renaissance stone buildings. The imposing hilltop castle is another must-see, created in the thirteenth century on the ruins of an Arab fortress. The Santa Maria Church is also of interest – showing signs of pagan roots, as well as imprints from its time as a Mosque.
