Plaza Mayor

  • The small sloping Plaza Mayor in Trinidad has gardens on a raised platform, with paths dividing it in quarters.
  • The resulting four small garden beds are fenced off by white wrought-iron fences.
  • Trinidad's remarkably peaceful main square is located in the heart of the casco histórico and is the town's most photographed spot.
  • Cobbled streets surrounding the square, separating it from the surrounding buildings. Wrought-iron lamp-posts, statues of English greyhounds, and columns with large terra-cotta finials decorate the plaza.
  • It's an evocative spot to pull up a seat, order a cool drink, and imagine what life must have been like here when wealthy sugar barons sauntered along the cobbled streets.
