If you want to walk a bit and get out of the beaten track while in Trinidad, climb up to the Ermita de Nuestra Senora de la Candelaria de la Popa.

My experience, Explo description: 

This is a 18th Century church. This is the only vestige of a Spanish military hospital.

The whole building are nowadays seriously damaged.

Visit also the vestiges of the hospital.

My personal recommendations: 

The best is to go there at the sunset. The view over Trinidad is amazing. Many people come there at that time, enjoying the view, and a few glasses of rum…

How getting there: 

By feet. The church is about 300m from the central square.

A tip to eat: 

Bring appetizer and rum to enjoy the sunset!

A tip to sleep: 

In Trinidad for sure.

Useful information: 
Open hours: 

All day long.

Visit duration: 

From 5 minutes to 1 hour!

Entry fees: 


Bar close to the church!

Hi there,

Just wanted to add something more: I have heard while I was in Trinidad that close to this church, there is an amazing bar - night club in a cave...

Should go there!
