Sunset at Loma de la Vigia
When one walks up the Desenga˝o street, until the very end, you will find yourself over an slope full of weeds in the top of the city and smelling the mountain, dirt everywhere and humble homes. At the top are the ruins of the church, the oldest one in the city, now sunk in a hurricane of masonry that grows right next to a 5 star hotel they are building over the hill. From there, there is a beautiful view of Trinidad and its surroundings, the sea and mountains in harmonious relationship with the villa. But don't you stop there, going a little higher you will find the TV transmission tower and if you are lucky enough the 'responsible' will let you go up and take a seat in the on the roof of the cabin, from there be sure you brought your Havana bottle, because you are gonna have a blast looking as the sun sinks down the caribbean sea.

It is not a bell tower but the viewpoint that tops the old Cantero palace. Placed in Simon Bolivar street, it is one of the most splendid and luxurious buildings in Trinidad. From the top you have the best view of the grid of cobblestone streets that form this colonial gem; also you can see the ruins of the chapel of Candlemas, at the foot of Cerro de la Vigia, banana and coffee plantations and green flooding around the city.
