REFRESHMENTS

Trujillo has no end of places where you can rest, refuel and take in the local atmosphere. The fancier places are around the town square and C/ Sillerias. Or walk down to lower Trujillo for a more authentic local colour

Veggie: typical of Spain, veggie options in Trujillo are limited outside of "Casa Yoga Mingo Ramos". However, Plaza Mayor and GLOSS in the town square have a reasonable selection

Non-veggie: Number 7 in C/ Sillerias has a growing reputation for serving great traditional food with a modern twist. Or try Deleite, tucked away beside the Palacio De Piedras Albas. Juan Carlos serves among the city's best cheeses, Iberico ham and a discerning selection of wines and craft beers

SHOP

Traditional items include ceramics, jewelery, shawls and embroidery. Try Sala De Artesanía, in C/ De La Merced for traditional & modern local arts and crafts

Plentiful deli's offer the region's specialities. The region's cheeses are among the best in Spain. Extremadura is home to smoky paprika and acorn-fed Iberico ham, great wines and latterly some exceptional craft beers.

Visit the Thursday market for fresh produce, a fantastic array of olives, general bargains, local gossip and oodles of atmosphere

SWIM

Swim and sun-bathe in your hotel or join the locals in the public pool, complete with bar-restaurant, cool tunes and posing to rival any costa beach
