There are many interesting historical buildings inside the Old Arabic fortress, most of which were built during the rule of the Moors, retaken by Christian forces in 1232 by Fernando III. From the edge of the fort, one can get great sweeping vistas of the plains surrounding Trujillo.

Our hotel is a former 16th century Santa Clara monastery. The website promises an atmosphere of peace and plenty of quiet tranquility ... during our stay there were at least one boisterous couple next door and a constant hammering of "structural refurbishment" by midday. There are two beautiful cloisters inside the compound, one of them dated from the Renaissance complete with classic arches and columns.
