Bell Tower & Museo Romantico at night, in the heart of historic Trinidad - 1514. ( St. Francis Church- 1813), ( Museum -1740-1808)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Bell tower of the Church of St. Francis, erected by Franciscan monks in 1813. The Symbol of Trinidad, is probably most photographed building in Cuba. Featured on T-Shirts, mugs, pottery and even on a 0.25 Peso coin. Museo Romantico on the right (1740-1812) is a large villa, build by one of the richest Trinidad sugar baron families Borrell/ Brunet.

Trinidad is the 3rd oldest city in Cuba. Founded in 1514!

It had a UNESCO assisted million $$ paint job done, since it was declared as World Heritage site in 1988.

Camera just resting on the ground. 6 sec exposure.
