capital city of Sancti Spiritus, the third village founded by the Spanish is
today one of the main tourist destinations in Cuba. Staying at a Casa
Particular (Private Lodging Facility) in Trinidad is like a journey into the
past: rooms with original furniture of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries,
cobbled streets, round arched windows, wooden balconies, squares, mansions and
palaces; without a doubt one of the best preserved colonial cities of America,
declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988.
Trinidad has an abundant infrastructure, near accommodation facilities that supplement your vacations. Numberless museums, homes of that epoch, and architectural gems, which at the same time offer a display of identity pieces, furniture, decorative arts, Aboriginal objects and a lot more.
Family restaurants inside people’s own homes (more economical), nightclubs and several facilities are available for those who prefer life under the stars. Delight your eyes from the balconies of “La Casa Cantero” and Ortiz Palace, visit “El Cristo de la Vera Cruz” (The Christ from Veracruz), Holy Trinity Parish Church, participate in traditional parties such as La Candelaria, San Blas, La Cruz de Mayo and San Juan Carnival; but above all, be sure to try “La canchánchara trinitaria” or visit “El Valle de los ingenios” (the Valley of Sugar Mills), surrounded by Escambray Mountain Range. Trinidad is also a region with excellent attributes for those who love nature due to the presence of endemic species in the middle of a lush green paradise. South, you can sunbathe on the beaches of Ancon peninsula.
