Iglesia Parroquial Mayor del Espiritu Santo, Trinidad
(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
In the heart of the city stands Iglesia Parroquial Mayor del Espiritu Santo, the biggest church in Cuba. Towering over the plaza, the church features a simplistic Neo-classical façade with cracked paint and stains around its edges. Inside the church contains an impressive 18th-century wooden statue of Christ "El Señor de la Vera Cruz," which serves as a culturally important monument of the city. Notice the grand white arches that support the church's high ceilings and a mahogany alter lavished with decoration at the end of the hall.

  • The church is on Plaza Mayo and is open only from 10:30. We walked around and found it to be a charming little church 
  • The main church on the Plaza Mayor just invites you to linger. No sacred climax but beautiful to look at and in tropical temperatures a resting place.

  • Beautiful little well restored Church back and height on the major plaza. The Interior is simple but the altar in carved wood is beautiful
