In Trinidad, Spanish colonial charm meets curious travelers at every corner.
Once the luxurious hub of the opulent sugar traders, the city of Trinidad is an exquisite beauty. It is also one of the preserved cities of Cuba before the revolution. The city still displays the laurels of industrial growth. Now a UNESCO Site as well, Trinidad offers a journey unveiling the breadth of Cuban history. But beyond the eclectic blend of European influences and Caribbean flair, a vivacious contemporary scene fringes it. Spend some time exploring them on foot, and the reason why it is the authentic heart of the country will soon unfold.
A sacred house of the Afro-Cuban heritage, the Santeria museum is where the oldest traditions and intriguing tales reside. The museum honors the goddess of the sea with several natural offerings. Imagery becomes almost theatrical inside the shrine. The overall appearance of the building astonishes visitors with its balmy vibe and pastel colors. Another cultural museum is Historico Municipal. Nowadays, it serves as the chief attraction with superb panoramic views of the city. For closer shots, the main square is the perfect spot.
Outside the museums and historical buildings, the city has an uncanny ability to captivate with its chill restaurants and bars. Once again, sugar is the protagonist in the most delicious beverages. And, the best is indisputably the iconic Canchánchara. Seek out the bar at night. There, help yourself with the most refreshing drink in all of the Caribbean and unwind as the city lives up to the hype.
