Trinidad is a city located on the south coast of the center of the island of Cuba. It was one of the first villas founded in Cuba by the Spanish colonizers (in 1514). It reached a great splendor at the time of the colony thanks to the extensive sugar plantations, livestock and tobacco cultivation, which was manifested in its architecture, equipped with beautiful mansions, large colonial houses, parks and other urban spaces that stand out still today in an excellent state of conservation, which is why it holds the title of UNESCO World Heritage Site.
