The present-day Cuban municipality of Trinidad, located in the central part of the Island, has a rich history which begins with the first aborigine settlements – occupying the same territory as today’s municipality – the so-called pre-Colombian period, and goes through the Spanish colonization, the independence struggles, the republican or sham-republic period up to the current revolutionary period.
Trinidad was the third village founded in Cuba by the Spanish conquistadores, who, led by the Spanish military man Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar, settled the village at the beginning of 1514. From that moment on, the village went through alternate periods of prosperity and decadence during colonial times. All the Spaniards who accompanied Hernán Cortés in the conquest of Mexico left from Trinidad. As of the XVII century, an intense agricultural activity based on sugar production started in the city and its surroundings. One of its sugar mills, El Guaimaro, property of José Mariano Borell y Padrón, was one of the most remarkable sugar producers of the world in 1827, reaching a maximum sugar production of around 3 000 tons.
Trinidad fought for the independence of Cuba long before 1868, but unlike the rebels of the eastern part of the island who wanted the absolute independence of Cuba from the Spanish Empire, the patriots in Trinidad were in favour of annexation to the United States of America. Among the most important figures of this annexationist movement were Narciso López (a Venezuelan military man who commissioned Miguel TeurbeTolón to devise the current national symbols: the Cuban Flag and the Cuban Coat of Arms) and José Aniceto Iznaga Borrell, who wanted the annexation and arranged an interview with Simon Bolivar to support this cause.
Trinidad has been declared a Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. It is in this city where the colonial architecture and atmosphere have best been preserved in the Island; that is why it is also known as the Museum City of the Caribbean. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most magical and charming cities of Latin America and the Caribbean. In its surroundings, of great natural beauty, one can find not only the monumental Valle de los Ingenios, which has also been declared a Cultural Heritage of Humanity, but also El Ancon beach, just a few kilometres away from the city, and the Escambray mountain range, a true ecological paradise.
