It's a pity they don't keep these things clean or do something to add a hit if atmosphere to what is essentially an empty building lot, let's face it, it die an' require to much imagination to add character to a medieval castle, and Spain is full of them. Anyway if you are in Trujillo then do visit the castle... More

The Views from the Castillo are great, good sights to the old city and the plaza. The castle is on the top of the hill and it was also great to see the old town when walking to the castle.

This is a well preserved castle that cost very little to go in. It offers great scenic views of the small village and surrounding countryside. If you love castles then this is a great one to visit.

If you're tired and want to go back down as soon as possible, or if you've spent all your money on churches etc on the way up and you don't think you'll be able to afford the entrance ticket, you can still enjoy a tremendous view over the plain from a special viewing point outside the castle walls.

We loved this castle with so much history and the great views of the town of Trujillo and surrounding areas. This place acquires a kind of magical glow while the Sun orange rays start retracting to the incoming night.

The castle itself is in pretty good condition and worth going in to look around, but the main highlight for me is walking up there from the Plaza Mayor through the old streets and the view from the top over the surrounding plains is great.

Very cheap to get in: 1.40 euros per person. It is beautiful and has a great view of the city and the countryside. keep a close eye on your kids, there are no barriers but this makes it quite authentic!

An ancient castle on a hill, go there and see it! Don't know what else to say really but there are cisterns and panoramic views of the countryside.

Driving into this beautiful village sure was a feast for the eyes. It's massive castle perched high upon the ridge and the old town wall was something to behold. Later when I walked around the entire area, the camera ran out of batteries. It was so beautiful, as was the weather, I couldn't have asked for more. It was also... More

The village of Trujillo is built on hills and the streets lead to the main square, where a statue of Pizzaro stands on the right side, in front of a church. Taking one of the small roads up, you end up at the castle walls and the 1.5 euro entry fee is worth paying to be able to climb the... More
