Bus station in Trinidad. It's in the center of the historic district.
Trinidad is an adorable town, earning a designation as a Unesco World Heritage Site. The streets are cobbled and the buildings are colorful.
Plaza Mayor in the historic center. It's made of 4 fenced gardens with a palm tree in the center of each garden.
Iglesia de la Santisima Trinidad--the Church of the Holy Trinity, located in the northeast corner of Plaza Mayor. A church has stood on this site since 1620 but the current building was finished in 1892.
The Museo de la Lucha Contra Bandidos is located 1 block northwest of Plaza Mayor. The bell tower is part of an 18th century church and convent. Admission to the museum is 1 CUC and you can climb the tower for a panoramic view of the city.
You can take a carriage ride around town
or walk around the neighborhoods.
Some tourists were on horseback
while others were in classic cars.

On a small hill beyond the end of Simon Bolivar is a dilapidated church--the Ermita de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria de la Popa del Barco. There's supposed to be a 5-star hotel nearby but we couldn't find it.
A strange thing to find in such a colonial town was Bar Yesterday, located on Gustavo Izquierdo, where the decor is dedicated to the Beatles,
including 4 life-size statues of Paul, Ringo, John & George.
