The Plaza Mayor during the Chíviri. Easter Sunday and the town square is fills with people dressed in local costumes. They sing, dance, eat and drink to the beat of Chíviri.

We drove to Trujillo for the afternoon (staying in Caceres) the Plaza Mayor is one of the nicest squares we saw during our trip around Spain. The storks nesting on the rooftops, the buildings, the statues. Great place and afternoon out.

This is one of the loveliest town squares I've seen (and I've seen a lot). We were lucky. The perfect late afternoon sun gilded the magnificent buildings while I was doing nothing more strenous than lifting a glass of a well chilled local white. Bliss!...More

The Plaza Mayor is a focal point for many of the tourists that visit the town of Trujillo. It is a lovely place with restaurants/bars at the edges but is spoilt by being used as a car.
