Magnificent church

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.

Was able to get a glimpse inside. We were told it was the largest cathedral in Cuba. Unfortunately it was being restored so a lot of construction around.

Plaza Mayor there is a cathedral called "Iglesia Parroquial de la Santisima Trinidad". Built on the 19th century. Inside there is a neo-gothic altar. The sunday masses are lovely with great spanish music. on the right side of the cathedral is the "casa de la musica" -one of the best of its kind in Cuba, and a must visit place... More

Step inside this huge church and admire the architecture and alters. Not much from the outside, but inside was quite nice. Some locals were there sitting on the benches, would be neat to attend during a Sunday mass.

Iglesias Parroquuial de la Santisima Trinidad is another perfect example of the influence of the church centuries ago. Grand, elegant and majestic, this church is in the heart of Plaza Mayor and is open to the general public. A must see, even for a short time.
