  • Museum of Colonial Architecture 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.

    Colonial Architecture
    Situated in one of the spectacular colonial palaces lining the Plaza Mayor, once the home of the Sanchez Iznaga family, the Museum of Colonial Architecture is dedicated to the famous characterful architecture of colonial Trinidad. The mansion itself was built in 1738 and restored in 1836, and today contains many notable 18th-century artefacts. Easy to find, the Museo de Arquitectural Colonial lies on the south-eastern side of the square and formerly served as the private residence of the Iznaga family, known for both their affluence and influence.

    “two ways ”
    two ways to do your visit with guide or without. Be sure when going with guide you get a lot of technical specifications for those interested of course no problem. For children it might be boring, but if you are interested in culture and history of Trinidad it is an intersting visit.

    “Fine museum, driven out by panhandlers ”
    We wandered into this museum out of the heat. The displays are very interesting and well-presented. I especially enjoyed the way that drawings of slave life were woven into the story, reminding us how important slavery was to these fine buildings. We paid our entrance and started walking round and were followed by one of the staff, who started telling... More

    “Can be a bit boring ”
    Unless archeology is your things, this museum can be a bit on the boring side. It's redeeming factor is the bones on display here that were discovered at an excavation site near Sancti Spiritus. These bones dated back 2000, so quite a find

    “A delightful Colonial house museum ”
    A visit was included as part of our guided walking tour of Trinidad. It started to pour with rain as we entered so we were glad of the shelter but there is an excellent guide who speaks perfect English. The main entrance Hall is the best room with an amazing ceiling. The remaining rooms set out the history of buildings... More

    “Pushy guide but learned a lot ”
    Well worth a visit but you get accompanied by a guide for the entire duration which is a bit annoying but useful for pointing out things I'd have missed otherwise. fascinating display of wealth and engineering.
