Trujillo is a small town in the Caceres Province of South Spain, mid-way between Madrid and Seville. (2.5 hr drive from either city). The Trujillo Castle, better known to GOT fans as Casterly Rock, sits on a hilltop, the highest point of the town which makes the town look like a fortress from the highway.
Whenever I traveled between Madrid and Sevilla (pretty often, like once a month mostly), I used to be drawn to the town of Trujillo, specially after dusk when it is all lit and looks majestic.
The castle is worth visiting in the day-time though, to get a spectacular 360 degree view of the town of Trujillo and beyond.
PLEASE NOTE : THE CASTLE IS CLOSED BETWEEN 2:00-5:00 p.m. (siesta hours), and costs 1.5€/person
The town of Trujillo, doesn't have much to offer except the main square called Plaza Mayor with an imposing statue of Francisco Pizzaro. We made a short coffee stop in the town to visit the castle and take a stroll in the centre.
