The tower was part of the extensive sugar plantation. The steps are a little rickety but the view from the top is magnificent. Also have a look at the luxurious home of the plantation owner next to the tower! Enough said

The area is lovely - bustling activity with locals selling white Cuban table linen, shirts, straw hats, cane juice and coconuts (with rum). The plantation house is now a restaurant (we didn't eat there but did meet a great local band who played for us)...More

Great views from atop the observatory. People there were awesome. We spent some time talking to the locals, consuming fresh coconut and horseback riding through the sorrounding areas. The ppl there were awesome, couldn't say enough about how humble and welcoming they were.

It is 44m high and the stairs are a little narrow and steep but the view from the top looking out over the countryside is well worth the effort

We went here on a day ride from Trinidad. The tower offers a great view of the valley and it has an interesting vibe with the souvenir shops nearby selling table cloths and handmade shirts. To me it wasn't that impressive but the ride is...More

Steep climb leads you to a platform with a great view of the surrounding environs. For larger people the descent could be more difficult than the climb up. The vendors lining the street can be annoying.

We spent a fun morning taking the short taxi ride from Trinidad to see the Iznaga Tower. It was a beautiful day for the drive, and we made a quick stop at a mirador near Trindad before heading to Manaca Iznaga. Once there, we ran...More
