Great views from the castle. This is the highest point in Trujillo, with views of the city, landscape, etc. So bring your camera. You can reach the top in a car if you have disabilities.

This area offers a rich history of various occupations. We drove up ( accidentally) but I would recommend a walk, as the streets are very narrow, even by Spanish standards. We were there on a Sunday before noon and not much was open. Great historical site.

They do alot of filming of movies in this town so be beware, if they are filming for example in the castle, you wont be able to visit anything. The day we visited they were removing... More

It was well worth the climb to the top of the hill - you could see for many many miles from the ramparts

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.
