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 very nice, small, very clean place. With an iglecia at a corner. A site that must visit in Trinidad, in the Center

  • A perfect place, where specially in the evening much running, music combos and fine drinks. Also on the day, there is much to see, some churches in the immediate vicinity and a lovely Park.

  • From this place I took my best pictures of trinidad the morning 7 h either before the sunset. Even if there is still a lot of people, this place is breathable and gives access to the different museums of the city. We spend every year at least sune times and enjoy visiting the area with Juan guide of cuba criolla com which always find us things a little away from the crowds of tourists who are each time more numerous, especially Americans. Do not hesitate to make knowledge with the Santería or the Museum, better with a priest or a priestess do with Juan.

  • All around Plaza Mayor you can find all important attractions. I love that place - colourful houses, old cars,... in the souroundings you can take a horseback riding to the countryside.
  • Are you looking for the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot? Search no more, you've found it. Just make sure to order something to drink and occasionally look up from your smartphone to enjoy the sun.
  • There are not huge differences between each of the Cuban cities but this area is cobbled and clean with some nice restaurants and more importantly not very many fume belching trucks
  • I was THERE nice area went there to explore Trinidad city in Cuba lots of tourist there passing thru
  • Small and nice. Not a garden but green area.
