Known as the city of Eternal spring for its mild year round climate, Trujillo is the 3rd largest city in Peru with a population of about 800,000. A Spanish colonial city with a rich history, it was first inaugurated in 1534. It was briefly home to Simon Bolivar and the first Peruvian City to declare its independence from Spain.
Whilst the historic center of the City is home to many colonial mansions and churches, it is also a changing city with many of the features of a modern city including modern shopping malls, and a varied nightlife. In the center of the city and also close to our school there are many restaurants, bars and cafes offering a wide variety of cuisine.
Trujillo is the educational center of Northern Peru, boasting 5 large universities and many smaller colleges.
