Plaza de Armas de Trujillo, Trujillo

4.4
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.

  • While we know recently this city was affected by the el Niño phenomenon, but it is not necessary to enclose the square since they can go fixing it by parts, you can't go somewhere without visiting the main square, what a shame they have to encircle the square and would not give neither a chance to take pictures with the Cathedral

  • They are reconstructing the plaza, as is usual with the extreme graft in Latin America it is taking forever so they can grab more taxpayers money.  more »
  • The plaza de armas of Trujillo seems to me one of the most beautiful squares in Peru, seems that they lustraran the floor every day, it is wide really very beautiful! Perhaps they should take care of her a little in the night and not accept Street comedians on it. Otherwise this place is beautiful

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.
