  • Best view in Trujillo, it worths the visit.
  • Beautiful Arab alcazaba very well preserved and restored. The entrance is only €1, a symbolic price for its maintenance. It has great views of trujillo. I recommend going during sunset, becomes a magical place that makes you think about how its ancient inhabitants lived.
