For around a dollar you get access to the tower as well as the revolutionary war museum at the ground floor. Its all about the view and shots you can get from the very top though. Great place to start a walking tour of Trinidad.

An interesting museum, but not all displays are available in English. Some larger tanks and items in the internal square of the museum. It is free to visit, and so is the tower, which is definitely worth climbing up to get some beautiful 360 views...More

We visited the Museo de los Bandidos based in it, which gave us info not easily available otherwise, and from the tower and terraces of the beautiful building you've got great views of the city
