Trinidad, ceramics and the history of slavery and sugar cane

During the Spanish colonization of Cuba, Trinidad was known for its sugar cane production and slave trade. The architecture in Trinidad is somewhat older than that found in other parts of Cuba and reflects the 18th and 19th centuries during which Cuba was under Spanish rule. The buildings were some of the most colorful I have ever seen and just walking around Trinidad was an amazing experience in itself. While we were there, we visited a museum that held information about the slave trade and daily lives of people living there in the 18th and 19th centuries.
