Trinidad is a colonial gem on the central cost of Cuba and a place where not much has changed. The village has outstanding examples of 18th- and 19th-century colonial architecture and in 1988 was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Was built during a sugar boom in the early 19th century, when wealthy Spanish merchants invested their assets in opulent single-storey houses with Moorish-style patios.
Trinidad is one of Cuba’s most important villages for art and the central streets are plenty of galleries and shops with handcrafted goods. The village has large open squares, vibrant and colourful buildings, cobblestone streets, classic vehicles and “casas particulares”. A casa particular is a private family house that provides accommodation and can be recognised by a small blue sign on the door. In these types of lodgings, guests can be involved in the Cuban culture and feel at home.
