Trinidad is located on the south coast of Cuba, about 315km from Havana.
A city with a colonial history, Trinidad has retained some of its old-fashioned charm; certainly thanks to the salsa that resounds in the bars, the warm and pastel-coloured facades of its houses and the irregular cobblestones of its streets.
The historic centre of the city has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988.
Trinidad is located on the south coast of Cuba, in the Province of Sancti Spíritus, about 300 km south-east of Havana.
The city, which has remained on the bangs of the island’s industrial development, has expanded relatively little since the golden age of sugarcane cultivation in the 19th century and its historical center has remained as it is.
Today it has a population of a little more than 50,000 inhabitants

History of Trinidad Cuba
Trinidad was founded in 1514 by the conquistador Diego Velázquez, who had already founded the cities of Baracoa and Bayamo, in the west of Cuba.
If it is thanks to the gold mines that the city prospered at first, it is later, with the sugar and slave trade, that Trinidad really reached its peak.
For the record, it was from Trinidad that the famous Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés set out to conquer Mexico at the beginning of the 16th century.
Today, Trinidad is the most famous and best-preserved colonial city in Cuba.
Listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1988, the magnificent historic city center has recently been completely renovated.
The street names of Trinidad
The streets of Trinidad have two names, and it is usually indicated on the signs.
This leads to confusion all the time, but don’t worry, in such a small place, someone will know both names of the street you want to go to.
The origin of these two street names comes from the names given by the Spaniards, and the name given by the Cubans after the War of Independence.
So, to give you an example, let’s talk about the street where our private house was located.
The name of the street was Julio A.
Mella, and the one given by the Cubans is Guásima, so you can see both names, almost always, on the street signs.
