Well cared for town centre. Plenty of restaurants and music. Museums very interesting. Sort. Distance to ancon beach to cool off in the afternoon after sightseeing. Taxis ride not too expensive. See more of real cuba here. Quite contrasting to Havana. Viazul bus service to varadero best way to travel.

Visited as part of our trip to Trinidad and found it to be a very pretty square, surrounded by lovely buildings and a few lovely little cafes and restaurants. The Museum on one side of the square is well worth the visit and contains some amazing items from all over the world.

The 'center' of town with the church on one side, museums on the other and shopping at the other end you can spend a few hours here just taking in the scene. Lots of places to sit, eat and shop.

Beautiful and serene square with postcard views everywhere you turn! Great place to hang out when the sun goes down and the music starts.

This is a charming plaza with a church on one end. The church was not open (I only found 1 church open in the week I was in Cuba). The area has been restored, the best that I saw in Cuba. There are several restaurants nearby. In Cuba be certain to carry toilet paper! Bring anti diarrhea medication and carry... More

A wonderful place in the heart of Trinidad. In front of the cathedral, surrounded by old palaces of former sugar barons. Sit there, let Cuban live sink in and enjoy a sunset with Cuban cocktails

Early evening light makes for great photos, even for an amateur like me. Have a cocktail on the steps before you eat. Great atmosphere but choose a seat lower down. the plastic chairs are much more comfortable than the metal ones!

Go for a walk, get lost in the heart of the City. Nice place to hang around for 1 hour and get the real feeling of La Habana!

Center of town. Lots of music and salsa dancing at night. The streets are very safe, lots of people out and about, cafés and restaurants and shops are open late. Such a great place to be.
