You can not possibly visit Trujillo without a visit to the well preserved castle and its ramparts which give you views for miles around. They were setting up for a concert while we were there. Our villa is next door and shares the views to the west, but we will go again whilst we're here.

I have been to this pleasant village a few times and A visit is not complete without a trip to it's castle. Although the interior is mainly in ruins a nice stroll along the castle walls gives you stunning views over the village and surrounding area.

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.
