Worth the look

Quite spectacular inside, donation to enter. The only downside was being begged on while looking around by an individual inside the church.

This Old Cathedral was built in 1892 and is still active. The interior is very well maintained and breathtaking. The various shrines are made of wood, including cedar and mahogany. The wood pews still beckon one to sit and reflect. A really beautiful building not to be missed if you visit Trinidad.

Loved it, you have to be there to experience the peace in your heart. Excellent workmanship in the altar. Has high ceilings, light from windows gave it a relaxing feel. Though it was hot, they had fans.

Provides the best view of the quaint town and holds a lot of information on the revolution and the ancestors of those from Trinidad who fought in the revolution.

The church impresses with its simplicity but has a wonderful wood-carved altar and pulpit. Very well renovated gives it a very good view on colonial architecture

Having visited many churches in Europe, many for a fee, it was a refreshing change to enter without paying, though donations are welcome. There is a beautiful Altar & plenty of natural light, again unlike a lot of churches. Trinidad is a small town, Plaza Mayor & this church on its northern corner are easy to find.

The main altar and all the side altars are beautifully carved. The saints have glass eyes and extremely delicately carved. The church has been restored and is a magnificent example of colonial architecture.

Again another one on the tourist trail of this overrated town but if you are hoping for a quiet moment of reflection this is not the place for you as it is full of coach trips clicking at every image.

This lovely church has a commanding view of the old town. Inside was quiet and interesting. But when my friends and I returned on Sunday for the service, we were told that tourists were not allowed!

This church commands the top postition on this rather nice square. Set in the upper streets of Trinidad so it is a little less busy with traffic and people. This is a large church anew were allowed to go inside and stand at the back on a Sunday during service. Very welcoming.
