Francisco Pizzaro came from Trujillo. He was the conquistador who subdued the Inca Empire in 1533. Today his statue dominates the town square but otherwise the centre of town has changed little.
You can dine in the square. Late in the evening I sat with a wine in front of me watching Common and Pallid Swifts sweep low through the plaza. White Storks are nesting on the surrounding buildings. They take no notice as the bells ring out right beneath them.
