  • Museum of Architecture of Trinidad is located in Trinidad
  • As if it were stagnant in time, Trinidad gives the visitor the extraordinary charms of a vivacious museum-city embedded between the sea and the mountain. Trinidad comprises an area of 1 165Km2 and it is located to the center-south of Cuba, facing the Caribbean Sea, in the mountainous skirts of Guamuahaya or Escambray Mountains, belonging to the province of Sancti Spíritus. You can get there by roads that connect it with the rest of the country, and it has an airport for small and medium size airplanes.

    Proclaimed World Heritage by UNESCO in 1988, the old Villa de la Santísima Trinidad founded in the 16th century shows togeher with its multiple architectural values, a wealth of traditions and cultures where Hispanic and African traits are combined. A culture of craftsmanship and ceramics has been transmitted notably from generation to generation. In this area the gentle atmosphere of small cities reigns, where the creative capacity and their residents' wisdom have contributed to preserve from the past their most important values.

    Together with historical and cultural values of the territory, the attractiveness of the mountainous Escambray area, its beaches and the beauties of its sea bottoms, as well as its people's hospitality, are the particular features of this city. Trinidad is one of those cities that invites you to travel all around them. Its museums, squares and stone-paved streets make it possible to go back in time. Once in the territory you are invited to know the symbolic Manaca- Iznaga Tower, from where you can see the Valley of the Sugar Mills; Ancón and María Aguilar beaches, Caburní Waterfall, the Cave of the Skulls and Zaza Lake, host of periodic trout fishing tournaments. To visit its nearby keys among which Key Blanco of Casilda stands out are of great interest for those who are keen in the art of deep diving.

    Architectural Museum of Trinidad
    It treasures the most representative samples of the architectural development of the city during the 18th and 19th centuries. The carvings and the walls built according to the muddy technique are among the most representative examples of the museum. Decorative grilles and many other samples of interest. Architectural panorama of Trinidad.

    “Worth a visit ”
    WE had a really good guide here who made this museum a good choice. One of the most amazing exhibits was the semi-circular shower that was brought over from New York in the late 1800. This museum is housed in a glorious blue and white building

    “Fascinating Cuban history wrapped up in a gem of a museum ”
    Having the building's features explained by the engaging docent let us explore Trinidad's progress from first settlement through Castro's revolution and on into today. The museum is small enough to allow you to dwell where you want and to ask as many questions as you like. Well worth the time. In addition, the views from the top floor are superb!

    “Great guided visit ”
    Visited on a very hot afternoon in July and we were glad to get out of the sun. The museum has a great English speaking guide who carefully explains the history of the architecture of Trinidad. Only a short visit, but very enjoyable.
