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.

  • The minor Basilica, also known as Cathedral of Trujillo is an inevitable stop on your tour by the city. Nighttime lighting highlights its presence and inside you can appreciate the art of the era with their original and restored paintings.

  • Simple but nice colors and proportions, the Cathedral of Trujillo is one of the first notable buildings protruding through the Plaza de Armas. Nighttime lighting gives a more imposing aura, although inside you should see to complete the experience.
