  • A lot to see in the museum about the history of Cuba. Also sellers that you try side and cards to sell. Visit with guide for the information, unless your Spanish very well. Climb the tower was the most beautiful. steep stairs but very rewarding because of the view about Trinidad. Audio tour is also not, as not and Wi-Fi throughout Cuba.

  • 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!
