I learnt about Trinidad mainly through browsing pictures here on TrekEarth. There are many a great image of beautiful colonial architecture, bright tropical colours, rustic tiled roofs and narrow cobblestone streets. There are also a number of pictures from this vantage point, seemingly the best one in the city & one that I certainly did not want to miss.
The vantage point is located at the top the watchtower of the Palacio Cantero (also known as the Museo de Historia Municipal). The building in the distance is the bell tower of the Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco.

Beautiful view over the red tiled roofs towards the church tower.
The surrounding mountainous landscape looks impressive.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Caleb - A good vantage point allows us to see a fine overview of the architecture, local vegetation and get a feel for the topography of the island. An attractive and well managed shot. Warm regards Rosemary

With church bell tower above the rooftop, the architecture in Trinidad is wonderful. This picture was very well taken. Thanks for sharing.

An excellent view of the city from a very nice vantage point. The bell-tower indeed is the perfect focal point for this well composed image. Wonderful light and colors. Super bg with a dramatic sky and the hills.
Very well done. Tfs.

Congratulations for your very interesting gallery ! Here, the viewpoint is well chosen over the typical roofs, with the beautiful bell tower on the right part and the mountain on the left one, good mix between light and clouds in the sky, I like the natural colors too !
Have a nice evening,

I definieteley think that this photo deserves more point - it is simply stunning. The light has been managed so well and the colors are rich and warm, but there has been some wind captured as well - the leaves of the plam tree are swept to one side. Good POV ensures lovely wide panorama with mountains on the horizon and quite dramatic sky to finish off the image.
