Iznaga Tower, Trinidad

4.2
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.

  • Interesting to see and climb to the top, unfortunately like some picturesque merchants along the path leading to the tower.

  • A tour that allowed the guardians to monitor the slaves working in the fields of cane sugar. We have no trouble imagining at the time of slavery.

  • Not to be missed when we pass on the road to Sancti Spiritus.Immense over 40 m Tower, offering a great view over the Valley of Los Ingenios. Fun climb to the tower with a driveway paved, lined with dozens of vendors of White tablecloths and various items embroidered, specialty of the region. Products of good quality Restaurant of the same name as the Tower, allowing to to refresh and make purchases qqs

  • Great view of El Valle de los Ingenios. This is a great place to vist while on Trinidad or Sancti Spiritus.
  • A look back in history. Experience how slavery was brutally used in the sugar fields years ago.
  • The view is good, but not to the extreme. Be careful on the stands - they will price you more than the goods are really worth.
  • Interesting and historical place to discover more about the Cuban Culture. Great View !!!!!!
  • The tower offers a nice view
