Do not miss a Tour to Trinidad organized by expert agents of Travelnetcuba .Trinidad is a city of about 75,000 inhabitants in the central province of Sancti Spíritus. Together with the nearby Valle de los Ingenios is a site listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1988.Trindidad was founded by Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar in 1514 under the name of Città Della Santísima Trinidad. It is one of the best preserved cities in the Caribbean, from the time when sugar was the main trade in this area. It is precisely the remains of that colonial and slavery period, in which Trinidad flourished, that was the main attraction of visitors and the very reason for the prestigious award given to the city and to all the surrounding area most directly interested in the cultivation of sugar cane (the Valle de los Ingenios). Today the main item of the economy of these places is the processing of tobacco.The oldest part of the city is the best preserved and is the subject of tourist visits by organized tours. On the contrary, several areas outside the most touristic part, even very central, offer a cross-section of the most genuine Cuban reality linked to the cultivation of the fields.We recommend a visit to the Iznaga Tower overlooking the city and the valley of sugar cane plantations. Built in the era of Spanish colonialism, for its height the tower was used by the settlers to watch over the slaves who worked in the plantations. In the city, a stop at the Romantic Museum and the Church of the Santissima Trinidad is a must. The Canchanchara is the most famous bar in Trinidad where you can taste a typical cocktail whose recipe is handed down from the colonial era, the cocktail based on lemon juice, cane sugar and rum was used to restore vigor after the days of work in the plantations. Another attraction of the small colonial town is the ceramic craft workshop.At the edge of the city of Trinidad lies the famous Ancón peninsula with a renowned and wide white sand beach (Playa Ancón) on which stands a tourist complex, among the first born after the 1959 revolution, ideal for a refreshing bath and a day at the beach after visiting the city..
