In the historic center of the city, Plaza de Armas de Trujillo serves as the main square. The city’s independence was declared from this central point, making it an important icon in the city’s history. The four streets that merge to form this square also showcase buildings like the municipality palace and the cathedral. Walk to the center to see the freedom monument, made of three distinct sections. This is also a good spot to admire the bright colors of the buildings lining the square and to do some people-watching.

  • We stayed at the Libertador on the plaza and went into many old mansions, now mostly owned by the bank or government. Enjoyed the visits with our guide. I would not leave the plaza without doing this. 
  • Super quiet square. Recommend in summer wear lenses and Cap because the heat becomes intense. Clothes comfortable to walk by day but rather warm for the night. There is a cold wind.
