It was the third village founded by the Spanish Crown in Cuba, thanks to Diego Velázquez in 1514.

Furthermore, the city is rich regarding squares and plazas as the known Plazuela Las Tres Palmitas Small Square or the Plaza de Santa Ana Square. The last one is located in the Old Town, 500 meters away from the Plaza Mayor Square and it was an access point to the Ingenios Valley. The Plaza Mayor Square of Trinidad was an starting point in the restoration of the 80s and is where you can find the statue of Terpsícore, muse of the dance and the music.
