Trinidad takes you back in time with its colonial buildings and cobblestone streets. Plaza Mayor forms the centre of it all.

Took a Taxi to this tourist area. It was a very scenic trip. The area was full of craftsman selling their handmade cotton tablecloths and tablerunners. The tower is the highest in Cuba.

This is a beautiful city. The main square has colonial buildings surrounding a park. There are palm trees, white iron fences, and plenty of flowers and sun. Just to sit in the shade for a few minutes here is a great pleasure.

Stroll around the plaza taking in the 450 year old history of Trinidad and finish your visit with an excellent cocktail at the restored Iberostar Grand Hotel on the northern side of the plaza.

This square is fabulous. But it would be even more fabulous if it wasn't so dark at night...! They try to save light by using super low-power, white bulbs. The square would be so much nicer with a warm and more intense yellow light.
