Bell tower of the Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco. The Symbol of Trinidad, Cuba -1813

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Bell tower of the Church of St. Francis. The Symbol of Trinidad, Cuba. High near the top of the city. Now a museum of Cuban freedom fighters. Featured on a 0.25 Peso coin.


The view is from nearby observation tower (Palacio Cantero-Museo Historico), where a trip up is an adventure in it self. 150-180 lb limit should be the maximum allowable weight/ person, as the narrow steep staircase, is hardly suitable for anybody bigger then that.

Good one, Tom!

(I know 'the greed of the poor' that you made mention of, in Cuba. I encountered it in The Philippines when Marcos was in control. It seems to flourish under dictators.)

My very best, David.

美丽的风景, 我喜欢!

David, I can tell you that Canadians dress the whole Cuba.

I have not seen a single store which sells regular clothes. Only tourist T-Shirt store.

I did not share any of my old shirts, but my partner brought a half a suitcase.


Now, they are starting to ask for money. Some have still pride, but many, who have contact with tourist, are loosing it. The friendliness rings often false.
