It ‘easy to see why Trinidad has been dubbed “the Cuban museum city”. The city, so meticulously preserved, opens a window into the past, with its colonial buildings and squares that stretch irregularly, the remains of old sugar mills and huts of slaves, belonging to another era.
Immerse yourself in the Spanish colonial architectural magnificence, treat yourself to a walk through the picturesque cobblestone streets of this city just a pawn.
Trinidad was founded in 1514 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Most of its splendid buildings, including the Histórico Municipal Museum and the Museo de Arquitectura Trinitaria, are located around the Plaza Mayor, the main square of the city . Allow yourself a bit ‘of time for a trip to the Valle de los Ingenios (Valley of the Sugar Factories), just outside the city, to see the remains of dozens of sugar mills of the 19th century.
The picturesque landscape of Trinidad, suspended between the mountains and the Caribbean coast, offers an abundance of natural attractions. Climbing the mountains of the nearby Sierra del Escambray, refresh yourself in the pristine beach of Ancon, or go fishing for bass in the lake Embalse Zaza.
