The Iglesia de la Santisima is the focal point of the Plaza Mayor. If it's open then it's worth a visit to see the fourteen wooden altars and stroll the cool interior. The high altar is a mass of pointed spires that reminded me of the Sagrada Familiain Barcelona. Our guide said that there had been a church here since... More

THis church is worth a visit and houses several interesting pieces. Watch the windows just below the ceiling and pay attention to the stairs made of cast iron!

The museum has local history of the Cuban Revolution. The rebels took sanctuary in the mountains in the area before the "triumph of the revolution".

It is situated by the Plaza Mayor surrounded by cobblestone streets with steps up to outdoor cafes. There always seems to be music in Trinidad with groups playing along the street and... More

It was only at second try that we were able to get inside the church, it was nice in the inside, just in my opinion it needs a lil bit more of care, and also it was very hot inside...in general its a nice place to stop by.

In addition to the history there are very interesting tales about those who attended the church in the early days and of how the altar came to stay at this church where it was not originally intended.

Iglesia Santisima can be seen many different ways, whether a post card snap, iconic Roman Catholic symbol, or just another church. You’ll need to decide how you see it, but for us it is a working, living, breathing Roman Catholic Church. We were fortunate to be able to see the inside of Santisima as our timing permitted it, so off... More

If you are Catholic or not, but into architecture and culture that's the place to see on Sunday, may be quite pack with locals, but you will never get that experience when is empty or pack with tourist with flashing cameras and multilingual noise.
