Trujillo is one of the area’s most important historic and cultural towns and considered as Extremadura’s finest gem. The town dates back to 600BC and is famed for its strategic involvement in the discovery of the Americas and is the birthplace of the Conquistadors including Hernán Cortes (1485-1547) who conquered the Aztec Empire, Francisco Pizarro (1471-1541) who conquered the Inca Empire and founded Lima and Francisco de Orellana (1464-1536) who discovered the Amazon.
There are many artisan shops around Trujillo which sell the delicious local produce, delicious hams from the iberico pigs, cheeses, paprika, honey and local wines. There is a wonderful weekly local market, which happens every Thursday. Trujillo is host to the National Spanish Cheese Festival which happens annually in May and is a must-see for cheese lovers. The festival was recommended by Conde Nast Traveller and Harpers Bazaar magazines.
The best restaurants in Trujillo are in the main square. In summer months, the restaurants serve dinner outside on the main square itself which is an unforgettable experience. Enjoy reasonably priced local cuisine and delicious wines with a 360 degree view of the wondrous architecture as the backdrop.
