Trujillo is a municipality located in the province of Cáceres, in the autonomous community of Extremadura, Spain. It had 9,086 inhabitants (INE Census, 2013), located in the province of Cáceres, Extremadura. Originally settled on a granite knoll which was readily fortified, the town now extends to the South East of its original site. Trujillo is both a centre for tourism, with over 25 hotels, and a regional market town.The old town contains many medieval and renaissance buildings. Many of these were built or enriched by the conquistadors born in the city. These include, the conquerors of Peru, Francisco Pizarro and his brothers, Francisco de Orellana and Hernando de Alarcón. Pizarro's equestrian statue stands in the main square, the Plaza Mayor. The most important monuments are the castle (old Arab fortress), the church of Santa María (thirteenth century), and the church of San Francisco.It hosts the national cheese festival in early May.HistoryTrujillo was settled on a granite batholith during Prehistoric times. In Roman times the town was known as Turgalium and became a prefecture stipendiary of the Lusitanian capital, Emerita Augusta (today's Mérida). Later it was colonised by east germanic tribes (mainly Visigoths) although the prevalence of the population would still have been Hispano-Roman.
