Trujillo - A beautiful small town with many restaurants and bars.  Perched on a hill some 580 meters above sea level, dominating an extensive plain between Extremadura's two major rivers the Tagus and the Guadiana, lie the Towers of Trujillo. Trujillo is crowned by its Moorish Castle, built on Roman foundations, ramparts and fortifications.

Just a few miles from Monfragüe's National Park, Trujillo sits in a privileged location. It is merely 47 km from Cáceres, one hour by car from Guadalupe, 90 km from Mérida, Plasencia and Navalmoral de la Mata. Easy connection with Madrid is made possible by a motorway, the A-5, stretching for 250 km.

The origin of the town is pre-historic. It was named Troxiello, Turgalium and by other different names. The town now calls itself the "Cradle of the Conquistadores", having been the birthplace of many men who sought their fortune in the New World. Celts, Romans, Moors, and Christians have inhabited Trujillo over the centuries. Trujillo has a castle which overlooks the town and the surrounding plains. A fortification had existed for a long time before it was occupied by the Moors. It came into Christian hands in 1233. Juan II officially made it a city in 1431. The castle is on the top of a hill called Cabezo de Zorro (Fox's Head). The Virgin of the Victory is the patron. The Trujillian people celebrate a festival in September.

Trujillo was the birthplace of Francisco Pizarro, conqueror of Peru, who has a statue on the central square. It was also the birthplace of Francisco de Orellana, Gaspar de Rodas, and of Diego Garcia de Paredes.
