Characteristic paved streets, red tile DOMOSTW. The Plaza Mayor, with its Baroque cathedral, lies next to the former monastery of St. George. Francis with a distinctive bell tower-the bell tower occurs on the Cuban coin of 25 centavos. At one of the side streets, the residence of the Centero sugar Baron was created in the City museum. We find here typical of colonial architecture, a patio and a tower from which we can admire the skyline of the city. It is worth noting the cages with canons, present in front of the entrance to the houses-they are to ensure happiness and abundance, and famous throughout Cuba lace products. For the thirsty, the regional drink of honey, rum and lemon juice, called Chanchanchara. Evenings can be spent in the bar or in the pub with music and dancing.
Bu şehrin görülmesi gereken en merkezi meydanını gördüğünüzde bütün bildiklerinizi ve gördüklerinizi unutup bambaşka bir alemde olduğunuzu sanırsınız.

The preserved architecture is the most beautiful of live music and you will love this square where you will find yourself in the dance and you will not want to leave. Believe me, you'll be surprised, not a dream. Night Music, dance and entertainment are on the stairs facing the square and the state-owned café that operates here.
Nice park and square in Trinidad. Best place for night walk and social gatherings. Cathedral, park and big stairs, all very Cuba-authentic.
Quaint old Cuba. Don't miss the architecture museum that fronts on the plaza.
