Trinidad is one of the most beautiful cities in Cuba. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988. It was the third town founded by the Spanish crown in Cuba, thanks to Diego Velázquez in 1514. It is currently a city-museum with a great colonial architectural heritage of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, between which highlights its narrow cobbled streets, its beautiful restored buildings, its majestic churches and its fantastic courtyards that give it that typically colonial atmosphere.
The city has about fifty palaces and countless buildings worthy of admiration, such as the Parish Church of the Holy Trinity, the Romantic Museum located in the Brunet Palace, the Yemayá Temple House, where an altar dedicated to the divinity of the sea is found, and many more places of interest that will certainly catch you.
In addition, the city is rich in squares and squares such as the well-known Plazuela Las Tres Palmitas or Plaza de Santa Ana. The last one is located in the historic center, 500 meters from the Plaza Mayor and was an access point to the Valley of the Wit. The Plaza Mayor of Trinidad was the starting point of the restoration in the 80s and is where the statue of Terpsichore, muse of dance and music is located.
