Trinidad holidays

Trinidad was founded in 1518 by Diego Velazquez as a base for expeditions into the New World and it was from here that Hernan Cortes set out to conquer Mexico. The city became rich due to sugar exportation, however after the sugar price crashed in the 19th century many wealthy families left and the town fell in to decline. The city is a Unesco World Heritage Site and an excellent example of the early days of the Spanish colonisation, with preserved buildings, cobbled streets and hardly a trace of modern architecture. The centre is only accessible by foot, which makes it a great city to walk around.
