This ride starts and finishes in Trujillo, a historic town with a mix of cultures. Trujillo was originally founded in prehistoric times on a granite batholith, then became the Roman town of Turgallium before the Arabs built a spectacular castle above the town in the 10th century. Trujillo was the birthplace of Francisco Pizarro and his brothers, who conquered Peru, as well as Francisco de Orellana who was the first to navigate the Amazon river. Pizarro's statue stands in the main square (Plaza Mayor) and there are many beautiful palaces around the square which were built by the Spanish Conquistadors in the 16th century. This ride takes you through spectacular woodland, pasture and the Dehesa (Mediterranean forest) of holm and cork oaks: the emblematic landscape of the Extremadura. You also ride in the Villuercas Geopark which offers great footing for the horses.
