  • Rooftop revolution Museum as well as overlooking the old town of Trinidad from the sky, is a popular museum. At random in each room Recalling living at that time, in the ruins of millionaire made a fortune in the sugar-cane furniture and piano exhibition was shown. Bashibashi photo competition, and take extra pictures at the entrance, but many people straight to the roof. The around lax Cuba and it is. The stairs leading to the top where narrow steep slopes, keep your mind your feet. Also, compared to the Museum of the revolution in a roof spaces at the top and is crowded by the time zone.

  • Worth visiting the palacio Cantero, is a colonial gem, many rooms are furnished with period furniture. But I got the feeling it's a little left to itself, would deserve more care and attention. Perhaps it should also be advertised, it seems strange to most people! We were in about half an hour, but apart from us, there was no one else

  • Museum itself is quite okay - nothing breathtaking though. A highlight of the visit is the view from the tower - a must-see point in Trinidad tour. You will get to see above the roofs of houses - splendid view!
