The city of Trujillo in central Extremadura houses a population of only 9,800 inhabitants. Yet its size belies its cultural and historic heritage. Set on a high granite tor in wild, mountain-ringed country the city sits in splendid isolation. It's 9th century Moorish castle giving way to a labyrinth of shady streets and open squares housing the rich architectural heritage of nobility, merchants and conquistadors, built for pleasure and good living as much as ostentation of power during Trujillo's long and colorful history. Today it's a place of beauty and tranquility. A place for relaxation and healing. Whether your preference is for activity or letting go and relaxing, for town or country, Trujillo has it all.
