General

The historic city of Trinidad is located on the sothern coastline. Largely untouched by modern development and a designated UNESCO Wolrd Heritage site, it is one of the most beautiful preserved cities in the Spanish colonies.

An air-conditioned bus will take you for a ride through beautiful Sugarmill Valley to the tiny town of Manaca Iznaga, site of the Iznaga Sugar Mill, which was one of the most productive sugar mills in operation during the first half of the 19th century.  Visit the “big house” that belonged to the Iznaga family, with its small sugarcane press in the back yard.

As an optional, visit the tower from which overseers used to keep an eye on the slaves working in the fields.  It is now a symbol of the city.  Transfer by bus to a lookout point from which you get a great view of the valley.  Then back to Trinidad to visit Potters’ House and continue your tour to the oldest part of the city.  Have lunch in a Cubanacán restaurant.

Visit Jigüe Square, site of the Mass that was held during the ceremony founding the city.  In this same place, in December 1988, UNESCO declared the city to be a part of world heritage.  Tour the main square, visit a museum in the city (the Municipal Museum of History, Cantero Palace, the Romantic Museum or Brunet Palace) and other places of historic interest.  Tour the handicrafts market in Las Tres Palmas Square and the musical instrument workshop pertaining to the Cuban Arts and Crafts Foundation, near the square.  Visit the House of Cigars, Rum and Coffee.  Return to your hotel.
