We drove to Trujillo for the afternoon (staying in Caceres) the Plaza Mayor is one of the nicest squares we saw during our trip around Spain. The storks nesting on the rooftops, the buildings, the statues. Great place and afternoon out.

This is one of the loveliest town squares I've seen (and I've seen a lot). We were lucky. The perfect late afternoon sun gilded the magnificent buildings while I was doing nothing more strenous than lifting a glass of a well chilled local white. Bliss!...More

A lovely historic and attractive square with bars and restaurants and a great atmosphere.. Very good and safe for children. Typically Spanish and best to go at the weekend.

Shop around for the best café. Some have an English menu and lots do daily all-in specials. Choose one in the sun when the wind is blowing!

This is an amazing plaza and, at certain times of day, you can even see it without it being marred by tour buses and cars!

The plaza is very clean with lots of restaurants and even parking, unusual for Spain. The buildings are well preserved and easy to access. Worth a stop especially if you go up to the fortress. Have a coffee and enjoy the sights.
