In the heart and soul of Trinidad, we find the beautiful church Iglesia Parroquial Mayor del Espiritu Santo. Impressive architectural style that verges between the Roman and the Baroque, this early 17th century temple is Cuba's oldest religious building. Staying on the Plaza Mayor and...More

Adjacent to the Plazuela Honorato del Castillo, the 17th-century parish church, is an impressive example of roman style. Initially built as a wooden church in 1522, but multiple pirate raids inspired rebuilding in stone. The interior is not spectacular but the bell tower, added in...More

We visited a church locally called the Humble Church at this map location in Sancti Spiritus. It is opposite a plaza at Agramonte and Honorato, is painted blue and was a pleasant, cool interlude to strolling the hot streets of Sancti Spiritus. Very nice little...More

Lovely old church standing at the top of Plaza Mayor. Not much to see inside and it's free but donations are welcome. Worth a look even if it's to get out of the blazing sun.
