See where the town of Trinidad made its money during a visit to Valle de los Ingenios, a network of three interconnected valleys located 8 km (5 mi) to the east of town. During the 19th century, the valleys were home to over 50 sugar cane mills, and the ruins of the estates that built up around them can still be seen today. Some of the most impressive, preserved sites include bell towers and warehouses, slave quarters and manor houses. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, the valley's natural landscape and slowly decaying colonial sites combine well to form atmospheric and evocative scenes. Valle de los Ingenios is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Trinidad Edition.

He dedicated himself to taking us to places to consume despite having asked him not to: a place to drink cane juice, one for coffee and finally to a restaurant in the middle of nowhere. We were finally caught by a downpour. We walked through what he said was The Valley of the Ingenious, but we didn't see the tower, the haciendas, or anything. We told him we wanted to go there, but he lied, saying there was nothing else to see. We were looking forward to knowing the tower. A horseback ride through the sown and that's it.
