Retratos de Trinidad (Portraits of Trinity)

Trinidad (English: Trinity), a UNESCO world heritage site in south-central Cuba, is home to colorful buildings in a winding labyrinth of narrow streets.

Once a center for the Caribbean sugar trade, Trinidad now depends upon income from tourism and tobacco processing.
