This is a renovated typical colonial house which is furnished. There is an open air courtyard and a three storey tower which one needs to be careful climbing. A great view of the town from this vantage point.

This is a former sugar barren's mansion, now a museum. It affords an insight to Cuba's rich colonial past when sugar cane was king and the plantation owners lived a sumptuous life. There is a series of rooms displaying the arts and architecture of the time. It is as if the mid 1800's never progressed.

Old furniture without explanation (except for the boring guides walking around). Some nice pieces but not a must do.

An excellent example of colonial times and a stark contrast of the people today although my visit was some years back things may have improved today. Fantastic architecture and great views from the tower

An interesting house & furnishings, with a lovely view from the balconies. The guide was helpful. From everything we heard, this is the best museum to see.

We only had a quick look as it was so hot and we didn't have long. We did queue to go up the tower where the views were incredible over Trinidad. Very steep stairs and unsuitable for anyone with difficulties, we did see small children but tye last section is extremely steep and very difficult to get up and down.... More

We had a lovely lady ,with a lot of humor, giving a very interesting explanation in Spanisch and some French! Look how rich people of taste gather rafined objects from different parts of the world ...as it was yesterday...just for your eyes! From the balcony you also have a very nice view of the nearby Plaza.

An old Plantation House ... This is (almost) as if the family had just walked out - an amazing place in no small way thanks to the lovely in room staff who were happy to open wardrobes , sewing tables china cabinets. How hands on can you get? They let me hold and look at things. And yes they do... More

If you like antiques, architecture and history, this former plantation owner's house is a must for you to see. There are plenty of original features, furniture, glassware and ornaments on show. It is not difficult to find an English speaking guide in the vicinity.
