Wandering in the sun with great views

Amazing views at the top and well worth visiting. Need your hiking legs to get to the castillo and a bit more to climb the stairs to the view points

We loved this town!!! The castle is its crowning glory! The walk up was quite steep from the main square, but beautiful streets and views/photographic opportunities along the way. The views from the top of the castle walls of the town down below and the surrounding countryside are fantastic! The structure itself is one of the most impressive structures I've... More

This is the highest point in this lovely town in Extremadura. There are 360 degree views across the plains to the distant mountains including a birds eye view of the medieval town below.

For castle lovers, this one is a real gem - it brings multiple architectural styles, layout, size and incredible views to the table. Go as late in the day as possible to catch the sundown.

Most people wouldn't attempt the drive up through the narrow lanes, but we did, during the day and again after dark! The reward was breathtaking. The age of the buildings; the stunning views. Well worth the climb.

Visited this most amazing place and completely blown away with the size, workmanship, views, atmosphere of this century old castle. Great to be able to walk around most of the site without hindrance or warning signs or barriers as they would have in Oz. Make sure you take some water with you, there are toilets on site

We walked to the castle in the evening because in the daytime it was quite hot. You can walk around and see great vieuws of surrouding and also a lot of storks. They are everwhere. Great place to see

It may seem that after climbing all the way up from Trujillo town that the castle hasn't got a lot going for it. But for a modest fee the castle has the most amazing views of the countryside around. You can also get to feel some of the atmosphere of the medieval times .
