Plaza Mayor, Trinidad

4.6
Take a step back to the 1500s at the World Heritage Site that showcases colonial Cuba at Plaza Mayor. Built, along with the surrounding architecture during the peak of 18th and 19th centuries' sugar cane wealth, the plaza retains this old world charm. Wander cobblestone streets and see the preserved, colorful colonial houses, along with original streetlamps and benches. The site features the island's first Catholic place of worship.

  • If you come to small and pretty Trinidad there is no way you miss this place. Therefore, giving a recommendation is kind of pointless :-)
  • Beautiful plaza. I was slightly disappointed due to many shops not opening despite all of them posting business hours. None of the museums or shops opened until later in the day, some didn't open at all.
  • Zombies: Wifi Wifi Wifi
  • it is a very beautiful place. in the evening it becomes very lively with music,cocktails sold at the place, local people hanging out there ...
  • Nice architecture n a good place to relax in the evening
