Trinidad is one of the most beautiful cities in Cuba. Declared as World Heritage by UNESCO in 1988. It was the third village founded by the Spanish Crown in Cuba, thanks to Diego Velázquez in 1514.

Currently is a city-museum with a great colonial architectural heritage from the 18th and 19th century, among which stand out its narrow paved streets, its beautiful restored buildings, its majestic churches and its wonderful courtyards which give it that traditional colonial atmosphere.

Furthermore, the city is rich of 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 that was the principal access to Valle de los Ingenios.

The Plaza Mayor Square of Trinidad, also was a starting point in the restoration of the 80s, right before be declared World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, that gave it a great remarkability in tourism. Nowadays, in this square you can find the statue of Terpsícore, muse of the dance and the music.

What to do

The wealth of Trinidad is due to the economic expansion of the sugar industry thanks to the aristocracy and the famous families of Iznaga, Borrell and Brunel.

Trinidad is also a good starting point to know the entire central area of Cuba, given its good location, together with the fact that a few kms away you can find incredible natural and architectural environments. It makes the city of Trinidad also a good location for excursions.

If you are willing to stay in contact with nature, the close Parque Natural de Topes de Collantes will surprise you with its precious waterfalls. A few kms away, but still really close there is the magic town of Cienfuegos, known as la Perla del Sur de Cuba and the exotic waterfalls of El Nicho.

To best know the city stay between 1 and 3 nights, depending on how much time you have for your trip to Cuba, but it surely is a place that you can leave behind. Moreover, it has the perfect location to stop there in your transfer from Havana to Cayo Santa Maria, passing by historical cities and towns like Cienfuegos or Santa Clara, and including Remedios.

Tourism has a much more cuban environment around here than in many more other cities of the country. Actually, the best way to know the authentic Trinidad is staying in a local house, because it would give you the opportunity to live like a local and understand better their everyday life. We suggest you to chat with a Trinitarian, he will tell you fabulous legends about slaves, pirates and hidden treasures. They are people known for being kind and simple, in addition to great hosts.

When to go?

Trinidad is a town worth to visit whatever the period of the year, but if you can go during the second week of january you will have the possibility to enjoy the Semana Cultural Trinitaria, in which is also celebrated the anniversary of the city. Another important date is the Fiestas Sanjuaneras, that are celebrated in june with a spectacular carnaval.
