After Valle del Jerte and Sierra de Gredos, my final visit in the region was to the medieval town of Trujillo (Caceres), one of the many stunning old towns and villages spread all over the Spanish geography.
Apart from its stunning well-preserved architecture, Trujillo is where two of the most important Spanish conquerors, Francisco Pizarro and Francisco de Orellana, were born. The sculpture of Pizarro on a horse dominates Trujillo’s main square. He conquered Peru while Orellana discovered the Amazon River.
Walking around the old town is going back 500 years. The stone walls of the many imposing palaces show their age.
There is an old castle dominating the town from a hill
and a few stunning churches worth visiting
