  • The church , dating from 1892, is fairly mundane and even a bit austere, but it’s worth looking in to see the 18th century statue, the Senor de la Vera Cruz or Lord of the True Cross.  more »
  • Architecture was interesting. History of the church and its statues was intriguing. Worth visiting for both history and architecture.  more »
  • The Catholic church is next to the open area of the popular 'House of Music'. The church is open at 11am for a couple of hours. Internally there is some attractive wood carving at the altar plus...  more »

  • nice view from the top
  • A great place, especially during sunset. Located in city center
  • This place only brings me fond memories. I spent my childhood going every Saturday to the cathequesis. There I only didn't learned religion but also values I carry in my personality. Thanks Santisima Trinidad. Thanks Padre Cirilo.
  • This is my childhood church. The memories I have of this beautiful church are precious and endless. This church was the gathering place for all the wonderful catholic and good citizens in Trinidad.Everyone was welcomed. Our church was a family! The Statue of Christ in this church has a beautiful story. In the 1800 a Spanish shipped arrived with the Christ from Spain on a Spaniard ship. The ship had been having trouble navigating with the statue because of its weight. There was a big storm at the time. Seas were rough. Every attempt made to sail away with the large and heavy statue (Christ of Trinidad) was defeated by the rough sea waters. The ship left, leaving behind the statue, which is now in this church. This statue is of great holiness to Trinidad. Even thru the Castro Regime, our church family managed to hold Sunday School,baptisms, communions, Religious Plays, Christmas Plays, Easter Day Plays, Mother's Day Plays, This is where all my family and I were baptized and did our communion. May was the month dedicated to the Virgin Mary. All children would gather roses and flowers and at the end of each Mass would present the flower offering to the Virgin Mary at the center alter. During the Mass all songs performed by our course were dedicated to the Virgin Mary and in theme. We would hold many ours of chorus practice. My piano teacher, would not have it any other way.
  • Very nice church especially at sun set, it is the main piece of a lively and beautiful square.
