The museum has local history of the Cuban Revolution. The rebels took sanctuary in the mountains in the area before the "triumph of the revolution".
We were told that in Jan. 2014 they will celebrate the anniversary of this church built by the people in the 19th century. Celebrations will last all year. It is situated by the Plaza Mayor surrounded by cobblestone streets with steps up to outdoor cafes. There always seems to be music in Trinidad with groups playing along the street and... More
It was only at second try that we were able to get inside the church, it was nice in the inside, just in my opinion it needs a lil bit more of care, and also it was very hot inside...in general its a nice place to stop by.
