What you'll do
We will start in the old square of Trinidad called "Plaza Mayor" following the place where the city was founded. Later, we will enter a typical neighborhood of the city where we will be in contact with Cuban religious syncretism. The culmination of this part is to visit the "Cabildo de San Antonio", the temple of the Orisha god Oggún. Next, we will admire the daily life of the "Plaza de las Tres Cruces". One of its main streets, called Amargura, shows us the architectural evolution of the houses from the 18th century to the 19th century. Our walk continues toward two magnificent buildings: the old convent of San Francisco and the major church, the latter being the Catholic temple with the largest interior in Cuba. Meanwhile, we can discover different elements of our beautiful craft traditions such as pottery, "yarey" and needlework. We will end up in an 18th century colonial house to experience how a local family lives in the 21st century as we talk and sip a cup of coffee from the Escambray mountains.
