Photographer's Note

This is from the city of Trinidad, on the south or Caribbean coast of Cuba. This shows the bright colours of the buildings, making this a very photogenic place. The orange building is the Palacio Brunet, which is now the home of the Museo Romantico. The old centre of Trinidad is not too large, and can be seen in a few hours, but it's well worth the visit because it's like going through a time warp. The town was a centre of the sugar industry, with over 50 sugar mills located in the vallies nearby. With the decline of the sugar industry the town went into decline and stagnated for about 100 years. It's now undergoing an impressive restoration (still a long way to go before complete though) and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
