Castillo de Trujillo information
Occupying the town's 600m-high summit, Trujillo's fairy-tale castle is of 10th-century Islamic origin (note the horseshoe arch just inside the entrance) and was later strengthened by the Christians. Patrol the battlements for magnificent sweeping views (sunset views are exquisite), visit the derelict aljibe (cistern) and climb to the hermitage of Our Lady of the Victory, Trujillo's patron. A 50-cent coin makes her spin around in her alcove; you can also spot her above the entrance gate as you approach.
