Valle de los Ingenios, Trinidad

3.3
#1 of 6 in Wildlife in Sancti Spiritus Province
See where the town of Trinidad made its money during a visit to Valle de los Ingenios, a network of three interconnected valleys located 8 km (5 mi) to the east of town. During the 19th century, the valleys were home to over 50 sugar cane mills, and the ruins of the estates that built up around them can still be seen today. Some of the most impressive, preserved sites include bell towers and warehouses, slave quarters and manor houses. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, the valley's natural landscape and slowly decaying colonial sites combine well to form atmospheric and evocative scenes. Valle de los Ingenios is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Trinidad Edition.

  • I was much ilucion to know the history of the site. There are no guides or even anything where to read some history or that you explain where these. It is a pity that they do not have more organized place

  • As part of the celebrations for the defence of the thesis of a few friends, we plan a trip to Trinidad. By all the places that we would pass they gave much promotion to this new attraction at the viewpoint and we decided to go to see him. Upon our arrival the view was unique, impressive that picturesque landscape, those strings over those cliffs with incredible heights. Us embullamos and went to practice this sport of Grand adrenaline. To register we ask us for details and our consent that we responsabilizábamos by practice of canopy is a risk sport but the professionalism of workers there is great. There are 6 wires, the first two of practice to teach you to stop and the position that you should take. Every time that we were moving from one to another adrenaline was bigger, no doubt the last was the most impressive, the fastest and tallest. You could see all the scenery from there. No doubt we could spend the entire day practicing canopy, it is a unique and unforgettable experience. If it is near the place, don't miss this impressive option.
