The City-museum of the sea

Trinidad, as if stopped in time, welcomes its visitors with the extraordinary beauties of a city-museum located between the sea and the mountains.

The originally named Villa de la Santísima Trinidad de Cuba, founded in the 16th Century and declared World's Heritage by UNESCO in 1988, is without a doubt, an architectural jewel of Cuba and America.

Visiting Trinidad is something you should do when coming to Cuba for its cultural and historical values and the beauty of the Escambray mountain area, the beaches and their sea bottoms together with the friendly people of the town. The whole area comprises 1165 square km.

Trinidad is located in the south center region of Cuba in the mountain sides of the Guamuhaya or Escambray mountain range in Sancti Spíritus province. You can get there using the roads that connect the city to the rest of the country. There is an airport where small and medium sized planes can land.

In Trinidad are found outstanding historic and cultural tourist characteristics in both the city and the Valle de los Ingenios, also declared World's heritage by UNESCO. In this area reigns the calm and peaceful environment of small cities, where the creative characteristic and wisdom of its people have contributed to preserve the most important values of the past.

Trinidad is one of those cities inviting you to walk around it. Its museums,streets and squares make time travel possible. You should not miss visiting the Manaca-Iznaga tower, from which you can see the whole of the Valle de los Ingenios, the Ancón and María Aguilar beaches, the Caburni waterfall,the Calaveras cave and the Zaza lake or the nearby keys among which stands out Cayo Blanco de Casilda.

There are less than a dozen kilometers between the historic center of Trinidad and the beaches of the Península of Ancón, washed by the waters of the Caribbean Sea and considered among the best ones in the south coast of the island. Its sea bottoms, irregular and with notable concentrations of black coral, can be explored in more than twenty diving sites; some of them near Cayo Blanco, an isle about 45 minutes away by boat from the Port of Casilda.
