What you'll do

We will walk through the historic heart of the city of Trinidad, in a chronological order we will visit buildings dating from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century and analyze the evolution and difference in construction techniques and know the history of these buildings. Many of these properties are today private homes, which we will access because the owners are my personal friends, this will give us another perspective, how this people care for and protect the value and history of their homes. On this journey we will visit other places of interest such as, temples of African religion, craft markets, art galleries and art workshops, where in addition to seeing original pieces, you can share with the artists. At the end we will sit down one of the best establishments of our city, the Don Pepe Café, where we can talk and enjoy the traditional drink of Trinidad.
