Proceed from the fort to Central Plaza, comprised of Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and buildings of early Spanish and French colonial origin. See the former British, French and U.S. consulates and the Glynn Hotel, whose most famous guest was short story writer William Porter (O. Henry), author of the best-selling book, “Of Cabbages and Kings”. The Old Cemetery is the final resting grounds for adventurers who were lured to Trujillo during the banana boom day. Its most famous grave belongs to the legendary American adventurer, William Walker, who was captured and shot in Trujillo.
