  • The Plaza Mayotte, although it has a crappy Church, represents the beating heart of Trinidad. From here you can explore all the alleys that branch out in the historic centre of this beautiful city, there are nearby restaurants and it happens at the famous House of music. One of the most fascinating places in Central America.

  • 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.
  • 188 buildings dating from the 18th 19 A major city in the slave trade and sugar Cannonballs are used at checkpoints for cars casa de la trova casa de la musica
