  • It is worth the short climb up the hill to the castle with its splendid far reaching views. It is also worth paying the small entrance fee to enter what is a very well preserved castle.  more »
  • We walked up to the castle from the plaza mayor in Trujillo. We went at 6.00pm when it wasn't quite as hot. Fantastic views over the plaza mayor and surrounding countryside. There is nothing inside...  more »

  • Great views, unfortunately we paid to watch them take down the concert from the night before and dodging the truck. Unless you have a devotion you can save yourself the steps to the chapel. Walk on the ramparts.
  • 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.
