Trinidad

The colonial city of Trinidad was beautiful.

We visited the Plaza Mayor and main Holy Trinity Church where we learned about the history of one of the most important cities in Cuba during the time of the Spanish colony. The Plaza Mayor was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1988. Most buildings surrounding the Plaza Mayor are from the 18th and 19th centuries when this was a blooming sugar cane and slavery hub. The Holy Trinity Church was completed in 1892 and is famous for its wood altar and the Christ of Veracruz.
