Great Spanish colonial square. Makes for a perfect rest in the shadow or that colonial photo opportunity.

Plaza Mayor is a great place to sit and watch the world go by, tourists, touts, basket sellers, beggars, musicians, children playing, song birds and lovebirds! Try and find a shady bench to soak up the atmosphere as the music drifts across the airwaves you will be immersed in Cuban life.

We were intrigued by a 'Quinceañera' ceremony or 'Sweet 15 ' or ' Tree of Life' celebrations that was taking place. The family were happy to explain to us why their daughter was dressed like a prom queen and parading the town in an open top car with balloons.

You never know what you might find in the town Square in Trinidad!

The small square at the center of Trinidad is extremely picturesque, as is the rest of the town. As like everywhere in Cuba touts are barred from the square itself, but that relief ends as soon as you leave it's borders, so do make the most of the tranquility!

Central square with museums and shops during the day - buzzing meeting/dancing area at night. Locals and tourist out drinking and dancing. Heaps of fun. A must do.

We enjoyed the walks through the cobbled streets of this small town. Palacio Brunet was most interesting to see, original marble floor and historical objects belonging to rich families; it had neoclassical decoration etc.
