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.

  • Un pueblo con mucho encanto en el que han sabido conservar El Centro histórico. Quizá hay demasiados turistas pero es que es una parada obligatoria en cualquier tour por Cuba. Calles llenas de gente, ...  more »
  • Lovely old Plaza next to settlers church. Lots of tourist stalls in the area and restaurants. Best if all - a wifi zone Yipee! 
  • Ein Besuch in Trinidad lohnt sich, dies ist eine der speziellsten Städte in ganz Kuba. Leider von Touristen total überlaufen.

  • Go get a Mohito/Cuba Libre/Pinacolada and enjoy the beautiful, old, colonial city centre. Or better yet take a walk around the city on the sunrise.
  • Beautiful city in Santis Spiritus, Cuba. I recommend it.
  • In my opinion, this is the nicest square in Havana. Lots of nice buildings around, music coming out of the numerous touristic restaurants all around.
  • Trinidad and Plaza Mayor is a lovely and sweet old skool colonial town.
