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.

  • Not go full half day... or go with long block as if you do not, you will have to go fast to learn and enjoy the place or dare to suffer burns and heat stroke. It is a very beautiful place that conserves intact all of its colonial architecture. Very private, and its the surroundings artisan shops and places to hear live salsa

  • This place a lot of charm with its Church (restoration) and its various colonial houses. Nice pictures to do early in the morning when the place is not overrun with tourists.

  • 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.
