  • The façade is beautiful on the weapon place but that's all. Meanwhile inside is pretty ugly and has no interest.

  • Well-restored cathedral. The paintings on the ceiling inside are bright and lively. The outside is especially pretty when lit up at night.  more »
  • You can't miss Trujillo without first visiting the beautiful Cathedral. It's really a colonial relic which has been renovated and enjoy its splendor. Both its exterior architecture and the interior are very well preserved. The frescoes and murals have been very well-made and their colonial furniture are very nice, above all those who are on the altar. The altar and the pulpit of the time virreynal are impressive. I was fortunate to hear a mass in which the relics of Santa Rosa de Lima, who had come on a pilgrimage to this city, graced the office. Very nice ceremony. I recommend that you visit this beautiful piece of colonial architecture.

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.
