Beautiful colorful city, very well preserved (at cuban standards) but it's so hot and humid! Be aware and protect yourself. Go to the city's museum and climb to the rooftop to get a great view of the city.

Main Trinidad square, which can't miss on your journey through the town. Dominant place is the cathedral open for visits. Live music plays on the adjacent stairs during the evening.

Trinidad is a small town and you will definitely pass Plaza Mayor, as most good restaurants, music places, shops are in the neighbouring streets as well as the entrance of Casa de la Musica. Don't miss it.

Very pretty square. Saw it on a day trip to Trinidad and on a walking tour. Also managed to view it from the tower of the museum down the road. Beautiful

Like many places in Cuba, ok, all of them, this square has a very interesting history. The beautiful stairs were once used to sell slaves from. It is of course a wi-fi hotspot today so people are always sitting about watching the world go by....More

This is the main square surrounded by the famous colourfull houses and church. In the middle it has a small statue and a small garden. The paved streets are not always as easy to walk on.
