The cobbled streets of Trinidad in Cuba A Unesco World Heritage Site.
The cobblestone streets and pastel coloured houses of Trinidad, Cuba, together with the houses tall doors and metal grilles give the sense that nothing has moved on here since colonial times. At night this feeling is intensified with the light accentuating the shapes of the cobbled streets with their central camber and the height of the doors via their metal grilles. You are transported back to another era. Built in 1514 Trinidad was the centre of the sugar and slave iIndustry in Cuba between the 17th and 19th centuries. Then the city lay forgotten between 1850 and 1950 during a period of radical new building elsewhere, in Cuba. This preserved Trinidad in a historical time capsule which is a joy to experience.
