What's Trujillo Like?

Trujillo is mostly the same dusty, sun-soaked provincial town it was back in the 15th century when it sent off its sons for their American adventures. The differences lie in how they spent their money when they got home. Francisco Pizarro built the grand Palacio de la Conquista on the corner of the main square for his half brother Hernando. Higher up in the heart of the old town, is the contrasting humble house where Pizarro was born, now a small but evocative museum. Another museum celebrates the local cheese and wine. Trujillo likes to blend history with gastronomy. Even the Carmelite convent of Santa Clara will sell visitors small cookies, the transaction conducted by way of a discreet turntable to protect the nuns' modesty. Trujillo hotels allow a relaxed exploration of this important Extramaduran town.
