On a recent trip to Cuba, I came across this local man in Trinidad. He was anxious to pose with his chicken for visitors. Trinidad is one of the finest colonial towns I've seen and is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can easily walk the cobblestone streets and take in the beautiful pastel colored homes, and plazas of this well preserved town. Since travel has been eased for Americans visiting Cuba, now is a great time to visit Trinidad and the many other attractions of this island nation. Simply book a tour with one of the newly licensed travel companies approved to take Americans to Cuba.
Trinidad's Plaza Mayor is an open air museum of Spanish colonial architecture. The UNESCO World Heritage Site features colourful, brilliantly preserved architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries, when the town was the capital of the country's prosperous sugar trade. Colonial mansions, plazas and churches line cobblestone streets, surrounded by the Escambray mountains near the Caribbean sea.
