Peru, 11 Years Later: Historic Centre of Trujillo

As mentioned earlier, Trujillo was my final stop before heading back to Lima. This was a pleasant city to be in, with a very quiet and manageable historic city centre to explore.

It has a very picturesque Plaza de Armas. There's a massive and impressive statue in the middle dedicated to work, the arts, and liberty. There's also plenty of these colonial buildings with wrought-iron windows.

The cathedral is from 1647, though it was destroyed in 1759 and rebuilt afterwards. The ceiling is quite spectacular with the paintings it depicts.

While I was there I also checked out the Casa Urquiaga. This is a colonial house that is now owned by the Central Reserve Bank. It functions as a museum, depicting a historical setup of a colonial house.
