As you may noticed in my previous post about the Cuban city Trinidad, it is an extremely beautiful and colorful city. One of the most beautiful moments we had in Trinidad was when we watched the sunset over the city.
St. Francis Church is a yellow church with a tall bell tower, located right next to Plaza Mayor. If you don’t know where you are (you will get confused walking around in all the small streets), you can just look for the tower and locate after that. It is a must to go up in the bell tower to enjoy the view of the city. We did it at sunset, and it was amazing! I think we paid 1 CUC or something, and it was not too crowded either.
If you want to enjoy the view of Trinidad, the ocean and Valle de Ios Ingenios, you can climb up to the radio transmitter which is located on a hill above the city – you will see it from the town. Start at Plaza Mayor and walk up Calle Simón Bolívar. From Playa Mayor the walk takes around 30 minutes, and it is pretty steep at some points. Because of the temperature it is best to go early in the morning/evening – and bring enough water! We went in the evening, about one hour before sunset, and it was great – but too hot!
I ♥ Trinidad!
