Ruin Castle Must See
Discover the ruins of Castillo de Trujillo (Trujillo Castle), a 13th-century fortress built on the site of an old Moorish castle.

Discover the wells, defensive towers, and the 16th-century chapel dedicated to the Virgen de la Victoria, patron saint of Trujillo. The castle is set in the highest part of the city.

  • The outdoor enclosure is very well preserved, and you can enjoy magnificent views of the town and its surroundings. The person who controls the access door has the topical attitude official, unpleasant and few wanting to help. The typical that we would close down the window and say "come back you tomorrow" seems to lie, these people not appreciate the investment of the Board so that you have a job.

  • Fortress of Arabic origin dating back to the 9th century, reformed deeply after the conquest of Leon, currently its walled enclosure is next to the Plaza Mayor, and the Church of Santa Maria la major, the three main attractions of Trujillo. Recommended visit, can also climb the towers of defensive enclosure and enjoy the views. A curious fact, beside the castle of Trujillo, is a Gothic chapel that was attacked during the Civil war and is in a State of ruin.

  • We mostly came here because of its use in Game Of Thrones. The castle looks very nice on the outsides. Sadly we couldn't see the inside because of their stupid siesta and we didn't have time to wait for them to reopen.
  • Great castle with 360 degree views. You can walk the ramparts but there is not really much else. Toilets in the crypt. Castle entrance is 1.50 euros. In winter doesn't open 'til 16.30 for the afternoon session.
  • An awesome tour...sponsored by the town hall. This is a magical place to walk around and explore.
  • Amazing panaromic views in all directions. The actual castle is just the walls and towers, but a very small entry fee of £1.50 is well worth it! A highlight of Trojillo. Might be a way to drive up here instead of walking
  • Beautiful fortress! Climb up to get a good view of Trujillo :)
