Trujillo’s High Fortress
There are moments during travel when you find yourself completely alone. This is exactly what happened to me during my visit to Trujillo, Spain. I awoke early in the morning after a wonderful evening of celebrating Carnaval. Of course, most Spaniards were stumbling home or sound asleep when I was making my way from my hotel through the town. I stopped for some coffee and water and eventually made my way up the windy road that leads to Trujillo’s famous citadel.
Thankfully, I arrived just in time to be the first visitor for the day. I was excited to have the entire castle to myself. Of course, this meant cleaner shots. I really felt like a kid in a candy store. However, I would have preferred clearer skies, but I was thankful that it wasn’t raining. I’ve put together some photos and a few videos (one is a bit shaky) for your enjoyment.
Trujillo’s castle was built in the 13th century on top of a 9th century Moorish fortress.(1) The fortress is built out of granite and it is an intimidating site.
