  • Trinidad - Trinidad Traditions

    Description

The three valleys, San Luis, Santa Rosa, and Meyer, were a center for sugar production from the late 18th century until the late 19th century. Sugar production was an important industry for Cuba from the earliest settlement by the Spanish, who introduced sugar cane to the island in 1512, and trade in the commodity enriched Trinidad and the surrounding areas. Return to Trinidad and visit the Casa del Alfarero to admire one of the oldest traditions of the city: the pottery. This workshop has a rich history of pottery dating back to the mid-nineteenth century, when it was founded by Mr. Secundino Santander, whose skills have been passed down through generations. Currently, the Santander family keeps the tradition alive and beautiful clay pieces can be acquired in the workshops of a new generation of artists. Your next stop will be the visit to a community project - an exchange with the inhabitants to learn about the social activities that take place in the community. Cofradia is one of these projects. During your visit to Trinidad you will meet Pachi and Lía, a couple of musicians who transmit their passion for art to the children of the community, who in turn learn to play different instruments and to sing. Finish your land adventure with guided walking in this city, declared by UNESCO as a Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
