So the downtown area of Trinidad is sketchy, so while you can walk from your hotel on the harbor, you may wish to take a car. But once here, it was nice to see the architecture and style. Very nice people and beautiful to see...More

Located at the far end (away from the sea) of the independence square. Its not much to look at from the outside. The inside is pretty atmospheric with a wood ceiling and stained glass windows- has an old colonial feel.

This historic site dates from the late 1700's and reopened in late 2015 after extensive much-needed renovation and refurbuishment, funded entirely by the laity and private donors. Once upon a time the cathedral stood on the shore of the Port of Spain coastline but land...More
