I am a cheerful and enthusiastic young. I studied at Carlos Rafael Rodríguez University in Cienfuegos, where I got the Industrial Engineer degree. I love my beautiful Trinidad where I have lived for several years with my family. I am a lover of its history, customs and traditions, and being the daughter of an artisan it fascinates me to see the local artists, heirs of an unparalleled talent transmitted from one generation to another transforming the resources of nature into true works of art. Keeping alive skills that most of the time are an important livelihood to them. So I enjoy showing you why Trinidad was declared World Craft City and Creative City, and hopping give a new skill. Discover it with me!

Un bel giro per le strade di Trinidad passando dai luoghi frequentati dai turisti alla periferia, non sfuggono alcune differenze di vita locale, da vedere con i propri occhi, nulla da temere in questi luoghi si può camminare in tutta tranquillità e sicurezza dai cittadini di Trinidad ricevi solo sorrisi e saluti affettuosi.

We enjoyed this tour. It was a great opportunity to learn about the history of Trinidad through learning about the arts & culture of the city. We had the opportunity to visit museums, galleries, a church, and market. Our favorite part was making pottery at the Santander house. Would definitely take this tour again.
