Trinidad | Cuba

Trinidad was founded by the Spanish conqueror Diego Velázquez in 1514 and became a Cuban trading center by the end of the 17th century. The wealth attracted numerous pirates. During the eighteenth century the sugar trade boom made Trinidad a wealthy town and attracted many immigrants. Thousands of African slaves were imported to work in the sugar industry. A long period of isolation has preserved this unique colonial town in Cuba. (source)
