Steam train ride
A trip on a 1919 steam train is not easily forgotten. This tour begins at the railway station in Trinidad, you have to be there at 9:00 a.m. for buying the tickets and the tour will depart at 9:30 a.m.. After 8 km from the city begins the fantastic view of the San Luis Valley best known for the 'Valley of Mills' name derived from sugar mill farms operating as small factories of sugar. Protected by UNESO since 1988, this portion of land was responsible for the of the larger sugar cane production in Cuba by 1850. The visit to the valley makes your imagination flies and encourages your fantasy of being moved at the time of the slaves and the sugar barons. The tour includes several stops in different former plantation as Guachinango and Manaca Iznaga where you will be able to climb the old 45m high tower and have a beautiful view across the valley.
