    The ascent is a short and pleasant walk. But if you go in hours of heat. It is very uphill. It can be accessed with baby carriage up to the entrance. Then the ladder up to the top of the castle to see the views does not rise with truck

    Very nice view of the city walls and the surrounding area. Do not miss the underground cisterns that collect rainwater.

  • 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.
