Colors of Trinidad, Cuba

united_kingdomWe’ve stayed 6 nights in Trinidad, Cuba, and it was hard to leave at the end, thats how beautiful it is! The city is rich from historical point of view – it was founded 500 years ago, when Cuba was colonized by Spanish and Trinidad’s main industry was the sugar trade. The Spanish Colonial Architecture is what makes this city a wonderful tourist attraction and is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites.

romania_flagAm stat 6 nopti in Trinidad, Cuba, si nu mai voiam sa plecam, asa de frumos este! Orasul este mic, dar bogat din punct de vedere istoric. Fondat in urma cu 500 de ani, Trinidad a fost un important punct comercial datorita comertului cu zahar. Trestia de zahar era cultivata in zona, plantatiile fiind muncite de sclavi adusi din Africa. Bogatii vremurilor si-au construit frumoasele case in stil Colonial Spaniol care se gasesc acum in centrul istoric din Trinidad, in jurul Plazei Mayor.
