  • As the name suggests, the main square of Trinidad. The place is centrally located and is surrounded by the typical colorful houses and the great Cathedral with the "Spanish steps of Cuba". On the square itself some trees and flowers are beautifully designed,... Everything important to the space is actually gathered - the most important museums, beautiful streets with bars and restaurants in the vicinity and music venues or the music on the stairs every night. Here, the entrance fee for visitors 3 CUC, but very nice experience is music with the live. On the stairs or the square is also Wi-Fi and ticket sales needed, so many tourists who want to be online Frolic.

  • Whether they find a restaurant where you eat really well in Cuba is, in my opinion impossible, here we ate quite bad! the outdoor room is cute and the staff not too friendly.

  • 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.
