Trujillo Tourist Traps

  • nessie-ch's Profile Photo

    by nessie-ch Updated Mar 1, 2005

    It is more a video performance then a museum.

    Unique Suggestions: Whar concerns the "wine and cheese degustation"... forget it!!
    In every church you should pay entrance... that is a pity... and finally we avoided the churches...

    Here is an assortment of different sweets. However I found the yemas de Pizarro not as good as the yemas in Avila de Caballeros.

  • Casa - Museo de Pizarro

    By the name of this museum you might get the impression that it is the house where Francisco Pizarro was born. Of course it is not. It is not even on the same spot as he was born.Having said that, you can in this little museum find things from the time of the Conquest and a surveying description about the history of Pizarro and the conquest.
