This place is good for pictures, but if you want to have some real fun, make sure you walk past it and up the street to La Cueva. It's an amazing night club IN A CAVE! Cave Rave every night! But if you're not into that, the square is great for pictures.

Entrance I believe was 1 or 2 CUC for a guided tour though I think it was expected and I did give the guide another 1 CUC as we finished our tour. His English was 'perfect' if a little quiet and he explained about the building of Trindad over the last few hundred years, showed us the toilets the past... More

Really enjoyed the view at the top and got some great pictures, it's not a strenuous climb up and you can rest at each level. It's windy at the top!

Gives you a better understanding of the architecture as there are good illustrative displays and some of the guides speak various languages to help you understand them. It is the only museum of its type in Cuba and the house was one of the first to use gas lighting and retains its pipework and carbide gas producing apparatus. The shower... More

We had a good guide, but there really isn't much to this and they don't allow photos without a silly 5 CUC fee. Not worth the time or money, really.
