Fodor's Review

Brightly colored, well-maintained buildings and green grass with walkways and benches make this one of the most charming central plazas. Fronted by the 17th-century cathedral and surrounded by the colonial-era mansions that are Trujillo's architectural glory, this is not, despite claims by locals, Peru's largest main plaza, but it is one of the nicest.

Colorful flowers

Trujillo calls itself the City of Springtime, and the flowers everywhere bear out that sobriquet. The Plaza de Armas is especially colorful and well-kept.
