  • It's still a defensive structure, so it's perfect for feeling like you're standing guard on the walls. The views are breathtaking. It's pretty cool, though I'm upset that there were signatures of people on the walls. It shouldn't be said, but painting the walls of a historic building is not an acceptable thing. It costs a euro and a half to enter and in the chapel is fifty cents for the virgin of the chapel to be turned.

  • It is an empty castle on top of Trujillo. While the views and construction are worth it, it is best to walk quietly along the streets of this beautiful town of Caceres. It's quite an experience.

  • 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.
