  • The building of this Cathedral dominates the Plaza de armas with the color and grandeur. Inside the Church is a modest but has interesting sacred images with santos and dresses with cabelas.

  • It has magnificent altars, varied and finely decorated; It is wide and very well preserved. It is worth visiting it

  • I'm not religious tourism, however by the date of my trip (Christmas) I went to this church. The truth is that it is a quite magnificent cathedral, but I am surprised that here and in the Huanchaco Church I found signs prohibiting entry into skirts or shorts. In fact, I took Huanchaco Church for this reason. Don't think it's lack of respect on the part of the tourist being dressed, respectful way visiting a Catholic Church. I was really surprised.

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.
