WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT TRUJILLO?
Good morning, my name is Almudena Acedo and I will be your tour guide.
Trujillo is in the province of Cáceres and it is located in the Trujillo's plain.
The origin of the city dates back to the celtic times, it was called “Turaca” as you probably know. In the prerromanic epoch its name was Turgalium and in the moorish invasion, they changed the name to Taryala.
The most representative monuments are the Conquest Palace, the Duke of San Carlos Palace, Escobar's Palace, Santiago's Church, the statue of Francisco, Pin's Tower, cistern or the water tank and the Castle.
The best monument in my opinion is the castle because it was built as a moorish fortress and one of the most representative element of it, is the horseshoe arch. Later, in the reconquest epoch it became a castle. Here we can find a santuary dedicated to the Patroness of the town. From the castle you have a beautiful view of the town.
The most important conquerors born in Trujillo were Francisco Pizarro and García de Paredes ( Sansón Extremeño) and others... the first of them was very famous because he went to the new world and conquered Peru.
The most significant festivals are “the Cheese Fair” in the month of May and “the Chivirí”that takes place on Easter Sunday.
The typical handicrafts of the region are artistic works using mud as pitchers or wooden buckets.
The typical dishes are “migas”, goat and sheep cheese, roast lamb, stuffed hen as well as pastries like tocinillos de cielo or piñates.
