  • House currently run by the National Bank but are allowed to tourists. Formerly it belonged to the Urquiaga family, descendants of Basques. No doubt this colonial House is a must-see to see vivian as the noble class of trujillo and admire the architecture of the period.

Where to stay in Trujillo

Trujillo offers surprisingly few sleeping options for a city of its size, featuring only a few mid-range hotels suitable for the majority of visitors. If all you need is a decent bed in a quiet part of town, look for hostels catering to budget travelers. Visitors who don't need to stay in Trujillo itself can also consider the nearby beach town of Huanchaco, which offers more choices at a range of prices.
