Review of Plaza Mayor

Plaza Mayor
Ranked #1 of 44 things to do in Trinidad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Plaza Mayor sums Trinidad in one square - the romantic French gardens, colourful houses dotted along and the centuries old cathedral. Trinidad looks like someone pressed the pause button in the 18th century and Plaza Mayor, not as the highlight of the town, however a lovely square, gives a good feel of what Trinidad used to be like in it's peak! Makes you believe all those pirate stories!

This is a truly beautiful plaza with lovely colonial houses of which some are museums. It is not just for tourists, local children go there to play with the dog statues and local people are sitting on the benches watching people going by.

I have visited Trinidad many times and it never ceases to delight me.
The cobblestone streets and authentic spanish arquitecture make you forget you're in the 21st century. This is an enchanting town with very friendly people.
in my view, the room rental options are the best in all of Cuba.
this is a must see on any trip to Cuba!

Trinidad is a beautiful little city. Peaceful and clean. We stayed at B&B which is the perfect way to travel in Cuba. Each Casa Particular will give you a name of another recommended casa particular in another city or beach in Cuba. Grab a taxi and head off to the next B&B.
