Cuba: Trinidad and the Escambray Mountains

Visit Us

Southeast of Havana, wedged between the south coast and the Escambray Mountains lies Trinidad, Cuba’s most graceful and cultured city, a UNESCO Word Heritage Site with a vibrant music scene.  For decades isolated from the rest of the country, this colonial treasure bypassed the 20th century, and is in its organic whole one of the best preserved baroque works of art on the continent, with delightful cobbled streets, palaces and museums. Not far away are sugar-white beaches, and the city has a backdrop of chunky mountains draped in woodland and studded with jade green lakes, a popular leisure area.

Strolling through the pedestrianised cobbled streets of the old town (casco historico) at leisure, the main sites are clustered together in a rich testament to former opulence.

What our experts say

As a Cuban, it's hard for me to pick out a highlight. But Trinidad's cobblestone streets contain a treasure trove of both grand and more modest colonial homes, churches and quiet squares. However the town also lies in the beautiful Valle de los Ingenios (Valley of the Sugar Mills) and you can go hiking, cycling or horse riding in the surrounding hilly countryside at Topes de Collantes. There’s also a steam train, departing Trinidad daily at 9.30am.
