Plaza Mayor, Trinidad

4.6
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.

  • The church and the park in the front are beautiful from a design perspective as well as the vegetation well maintained. Simply beautiful!  more »
  • However, the stairs as a meeting point in the evening definitely has its charm. It coped with the bad WiFi thanks to the cozy atmosphere. Were taste good, but a little bit virginal for 2.5cuc as 'best mojitos Cuban' advertised cocktails at the well-lit booths, so ask the seller that it should load a bit longer but with rum... and at most a small tip. Otherwise really inviting, even if it may have been quite a lot of people.

  • This is a beautiful square not far from the Cafe de la Musica which the children had a whale of a time running around!  more »

  • 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.
