This is located in rural Tabaquite in Trinidad. Its a designated historical site. Don't leave home and plan to go here. Make it a stop while visiting other sites or while on a road trip to Centrai.

I passed through this iconic landmark while on a hike. It was certainly amaxing to see such a thing still existed. There were many bats overhead but it provided a mysterious and adventurous opportunity for us hikers
