Founded in 1514 by Diego Velázquez, was the third Spanish town in Cuba. After the gold ran out in the region and Cortes had left to go and conquer Mexico, Trinidad slowly changed into a town whose wealth became based mainly on sugar, tobacco and livestock. This wealth was achieved by exploiting slaves brought in from Africa. Due to its isolated location on the island, for centuries Trinidad was a popular site for pirates and smugglers.
Nowadays, when tourists visit Trinidad, they literally feel like they are going back in time. Isolation was a great inconvenience for its original inhabitants but today Trinity is one of the best-preserved colonial cities in the entire Caribbean and belongs to the world heritage of UNESCO.
Nowhere else on the island will the traveler come as close to the old colonial Cuba. After a visit to the Valle de los Ingenios and the Museo colonial, one gets a realistic picture of life in these times - both the poverty of the slaves and the incredible wealth of their owners.
