A Small Detour Sure to Captivate Your Heart

“Small towns have their own heartbeat, no matter how many people come or go.” ~ Mitch Albom

Forgotten Town of Trujillo

We ventured into a small town just west of Caceres in Spain. Trujillo is a small autonomous community in the province of Caceres. According to the 2013 census, the population was less than 10,000 habitants – 9,086 to be exact. It still has remains of Roman and Moorish structures. It’s a beautiful town with cobblestone streets, castles, churches, restaurants and shops. It seems as if time stood in this forgotten city. There were not many tourists, well there were barely people around. It was nice to enjoy the city without the tumult of people shoving or trying to get by.

The Castillo

The medieval fortress, The Castillo, sits high atop a hill. From there you can see the town center and beyond. It is a beautiful sight.

Difficult Terrain

The Castillo is partially opened to visitors. Access is a bit difficult for wheelchairs or those with limited walking abilities. There are stairs which were quite steep to climb up and down. It’s not as well preserved as many other castles in Spain. But it is still a sight to be seen.

Walk It or Drive It

You can either climb to the castle walking uphill or drive through the narrow streets to reach the top. Once you reach the castle, the views are breathtaking.

If you’re ever in the vicinity of Trujillo, I suggest you take a small detour and visit this beautiful city. It is worth the trip.
