  • Santisima Trinidad Church 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.

    Trinidad
    Presiding over the Plaza Mayor, the massive tower of the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity is the focal point of the town. This 19th-century church took from 1817 to 1892 to complete and is the largest church in Cuba. Tourists paying a visit to the cathedral will be able to enjoy a magnificent view across the region from its bell tower.

    “A large and beautiful old church ”
    You can get over-churched in Cuba and South America but this is probably worth looking at. A very large old church and located by the plaza, you cannot miss it.

    “Fourteen wooden altars ”
    The Iglesia de la Santisima is the focal point of the Plaza Mayor. If it's open then it's worth a visit to see the fourteen wooden altars and stroll the cool interior. The high altar is a mass of pointed spires that reminded me of the Sagrada Familiain Barcelona. Our guide said that there had been a church here since... More

    “Great view and interesting informationin Museum ”
    The museum has local history of the Cuban Revolution. The rebels took sanctuary in the mountains in the area before the "triumph of the revolution".

    “Wonderful architecture and carvings ”
    In addition to the history there are very interesting tales about those who attended the church in the early days and of how the altar came to stay at this church where it was not originally intended.

    “In the heart and soul of Trinidad... ”
    Largest church in Cuba, very symbolic to the people of Trinidad. Inside you'll find " Cristo de la Veracruz" the most worshiped image to everyone in town ( believers or non-believers). Full of traditions, from this place the Processions restarted in 1998 for the first time since the early 60s. Several gorgeous altars highlight the interior. A native of Trinidad... More

    “Go for the anniversary celebration ”
    We were told that in Jan. 2014 they will celebrate the anniversary of this church built by the people in the 19th century. Celebrations will last all year. It is situated by the Plaza Mayor surrounded by cobblestone streets with steps up to outdoor cafes. There always seems to be music in Trinidad with groups playing along the street and... More
