Pizarro

Pizarro is a town located in the municipality of Campo Lugar with a population of around 450 people. The colony was created in 1964 and named after Francisco Pizarro González.

History

A pair of murals featuring the LGBT colors in Pizarro were defaced with white paint on 7 September 2017. The murals had been put up on 28 June 2017 in celebration of Orgullo. The murals were created as part of a project titled “Administración Local, compromiso global” run by Fundación Triángulo Extremadura and Red de Pueblos Extremeños. Fundación Triángulo Extremadura considered the defacement a hate crime and asked for the case to be treated as such. The Ayuntamiento de Pizarro worked to immediately restore them.
