Plaza de Armas de Trujillo, Trujillo

4.3
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.

  • Nice Plaza. I recommend the sandwich shop near Iglesia de la Merced. Delicious
  • This is a recently updated Plaza in the typical arrangement of government building s and Cathedral on the perimeter. I think you will find it a nice place to relax for a little while and people watch.
