Trinidad Day 5,6,7

15-2

Trinidad via Santa Clara

These are just some of the sites we will see and do in Trinidad.

 

It’s easy to see why Trinidad has been called “the museum city of Cuba”. The meticulously preserved town offers a window into the past, from its sprawling colonial palaces and plazas to its remnants of sugar mills and slave barracks from another era. Soak up the rich Spanish colonial architecture by taking a stroll through the picturesque cobblestone streets of this very walkable city.

Many of its most striking buildings, including the Museo Histórico Municipal and the Museo de Arquitectura Trinitaria, are situated around Trinidad’s central public square, Plaza Mayor. Be sure to make time for a trip to the Valle de los Ingenios [Valley of the Sugar Mills] to see the ruins of dozens of 19th century sugar mills located just outside the city.

 

On the way to Trinidad we will make a visit to Manaca Iznaga Plantation. This is a sugar plantation in the valley of the sugar mills.
