Bogota, Colombia.- The search for its perfect conservation has made it one of the most beautiful colonial cities in the Americas, El Espectador states in reference to Trinidad, a popular tourist destination in central Cuba.
All are warm and calm. They greet and smile at each visitor. It smells of sugar, flowers and a sea breeze in the outskirts, seafood in the historical quarter. Art, music, museums, galleries and more color. Yellow, pink and purple flowers; sugar cane, tobaccos, Cuban cocktail ‘canchanchara’, and rum, the article ‘Trinidad, Cuba: a City of a Thousand Colors’ stresses.
The mysterious attraction that generate in everyone who visit Trinidad lies not only in the beauty of its preserved architecture, but also in the persistence of the past, the text states.
There is another rhythm. Trinidad citizens move to the beat of drums and stories, stop to talk and tell tales of slaves, pirates and hidden treasures, which have been repeated so much that it seems all were true. Walk, hear, smell and embrace, Trinidad gives the possibility to feel among the simplest expressions of life and color, the newspaper states.
The article mentions some of the places surrounding Trinidad, whose historical center was declared a World Heritage site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), in 1988.
Trinidad also has a lot of squares and small squares such as Plaza Mayor that was the starting point for the restoration of the city in the 80s and where the statue of Terpsichore, muse of dance and music, is located.
