The city comprises two different areas. Firstly, there is the mediaeval ‘town’ and then the ‘city’. What to see The ‘city’ is structured around the Plaza Mayor square, which is presided over by a bronze-cast statue of Pizarro on horseback. Some of the city’s standout buildings are located around the square, such as the churches of San Francisco, Santa Clara and San Martín, in addition to several noble houses and palaces. Did you know that all their balconies are at an angle? Check it at the Palace of the Marquisate of Piedras Albas or the Palace of the Marquises de la Conquista. We suggest you also take the time on your visit to discover the walled ‘town’. At one end is the Moorish Caliph fortress and in the centre, churches such as Santa María La Mayor, Santiago and Vera Cruz. One option is to end your tour of the city by heading to the Coria Museum, where you can discover the most important events from the discovery of the New World. Festivities The city’s most important festivities include the Chiviri, held on Easter Sunday, and the National Cheese Fair, one of the most important in the country. Gastronomy Swiss chard and wild asparagus are some typical ingredients in Trujillo’s local cuisine.
