Take a step back to the 1500s at the World Heritage Site that showcases colonial Cuba at Plaza Mayor. Built, along with the surrounding architecture during the peak of 18th and 19th centuries' sugar cane wealth, the plaza retains this old world charm. Wander cobblestone streets and see the preserved, colorful colonial houses, along with original streetlamps and benches. The site features the island's first Catholic place of worship. A visit to Plaza Mayor represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Trinidad itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • The heart of Trinidad. The plaza is surrounded by Trinidad's abundant architecture and culture.
  • I first visited in December 2010 and I am still in love with this environment.
  • This town, with its colourful houses and streets in Cobbles, that when it rains become streams, is absolutely fantastic. Don't do nothing but wander the streets and enjoy its inhabitants kind and discrete, and views so striking. You enter the Church, the oldest in Cuba, and admire the high altar: a Baroque masterpiece.

  • Trinidad is considered by the tour guides and books as one of the most beautiful city praised. This is true only in the Plaza Mayor. As soon as one is removed from the city looks run down. Sancti is beautiful, and barely advertised alcohol in the Interior of the country.
