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.

  • Walking around trinidad around rocks, get lost in the colors of the craft market and cool down with a fresh pina colada ... ... What more do you want?

  • Beautiful colonial square surrounded by buildings in pastel shades. Across the church a building that exhibits several paintings and from which, on the first floor, you can have a great view of the square. All around several souvenir shops, most of which have the same things. In the streets around (near Plaza del tobacco) a itinerant market quaint and the great staircase of the House of music where you can sip a refreshing drink and enjoy the views of the city.

  • 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.
