Iznaga Tower, Trinidad
(3.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Once Cuba's tallest building, Iznaga Tower was used to watch over slaves during the 19th century. The seven-story structure was built in 1816 and stands at 45 m (147 ft) tall. The bell that currently sits at the tower's base once hung at the top and was used to signify the workday's beginning and end, as well as prayer times. Visitors can climb to the top and take in views of nearby mountains and former sugar plantations below.

  • To get to the Iznaga Tower pass several small vendors and some are aggressive limit when you don't want to buy something. Too bad. Otherwise, the view from the tower is worth.

  • To get to the tower you go though the local market selling table cloths, dolls. clothes and much more. They used to use the tower to watch the slaves working the fields 
  • The climb to the Tower's steep stairs or kerbs daring among children. At the top you see the huge expanse of the Valley of the sugar mills. Deserves, partly because in the area there is nothing to see!
