"TRINIDAD : WORLD HERITAGE SITE" Street Scenes Tip by swesn
Street Scenes, Trinidad: 17 reviews and 28 photos
Trinidad was declared a World Heritage UNESCO Site in 1988.
It is probably the best-preserved Spanish colonial town in this region. There are colourful and charming colonial houses (many, still of the peeling-paint sort) all over the tranquil town. The streets are very peaceful, compared to Habana. Besides cars, there are many donkey-or-horse carts and bicycles.
There are many half-crumbling churches and museums to visit around town. These are located around the northern part of town, around Plaza Mayor. Frankly, around here, tourists will receive more harassments from 'paladares' touts.
Further south is the more residential part of town. Here, there is less harassments of the 'tourism' sort.
Many Cubans are curious and friendly. Perhaps, it was weird for them to see a Chinese girl walking alone. I was constantly called out by them. "China!" (Chinese girl); "Chinita!!" (Little Chinese girl); "Mira!!! China!" (Look!!! Chinese girl!)
Well, they are just so friendly. A few times, I smiled at the locals before they really noticed me and their eyes simply lit up with delight, "Ah!!! Chinita!!"
