This is very well-preserved and the Gothic reredos is fascinating. There are two towers that you can climb for great views over the town, although the stairs up are not even and some quite deep so you need to take care.

Read Turismo Trujillo if you are interested in history. This church is a very important building with an interesting alter. Take a walk up the tower for views to the horizon.

Really beautiful church and definitely my favourite in the town. Admission was super cheap, maybe €3. You can go up to the tower too for stunning panoramic views over the town.

Loved this church, but pay to enter as all the sites in this town. Worth a visit, not expensive. Lots of history here.

Paid to enter, then asked for more to illuminate the interior! But the altar and rherodos were magnificent. Smaller than I had expected, but nonetheless, worth the visit.

The Church of Santa Maria imposes itself on the Plaza Mayor. It is deemed to be Romanesque style and the most important Church within the historical centre.
