Trinidad

Trinidad is one of the oldest cities in Cuba. It was once a very large producer of sugar, and thus home to many slave plantations.

Today it is a popular tourist destination and known for its preserved colonial architecture and vibrant colors. I was hoping it would be a little less touristy than It turned out to be, but nonetheless it is a beautiful town. These are some pictures from my short stay there.
