The Villa de la Santisima Trinidad was the third village founded by the Spanish Crown in Cuba, at the beginning of 1514. The town was founded with the presence of Adelantado Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar, and it evolved rapidly, which made it possible to be one of the the most prosperous of the largest of the Antilles.
The work of conservation and restoration undertaken by specialists in this area of south-central Cuba, and the love that its inhabitants profess to their city, made it one of the best-preserved colonial cities not only of Cuba, but also of America, and to be inscribed on the World Heritage List by Unesco next to the Valle de los Ingenios in 1988, an area where the sugar industry prospered with the arrival of the Iznaga, Borrell and Brunet families towards the middle of the 19th century.
This sugar production, which enriched the owners of these sugar mills, made them emerge both in Trinidad and in the Valley, mansions and palaces that today are the pride of Cuban culture. The date of its foundation is celebrated each year with a Week of Trinitarian Culture; in January 2009 the 495th birthday of the city was celebrated.
In the mountainous area, the predominant vegetation is semi-natural, due to the fact that it has been replanted in its majority, consisting of forests, thickets and grasslands, although in Topes de Collantes, we find submontane mesophile forests, always green and semi-deciduous or semi-deciduous. In these abound the male pine (Pinus caribaea), the eucalyptus (Eucalyptus saligna), the butter tree (Magnolia cubensis) and the cuajaní (Prunus occidentalis). This dense flora alternates with coffee plantations (Coffea arabica), cultivated in the shade of albizias (Albizia berteriana), casuarinas (Casuarina fraseriana), guamos (Inga vera) and pines among other species.
The municipality of Trinidad belongs to the Central Cuba ecological district, divided into two sub-districts: Guamuhaya and the Cienfuegos Coast to Trinidad. With a rich fauna composed among others by species of invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, some of them endemic or with unique characteristics, as is the case of the smallest of the birds: the zunzuncito (Mellisuga helenae), the smallest of the amphibians: the little toad (Sminthillus limbatus), or one of the smaller mammals: the butterfly bat (Natalus lepidus).
The mollusks are varied and abundant, among which the Sacrysia petitiana and the snails of the genus Polymita stand out. Cobo (Strombus gigas) and oyster (Ostrea rizophorse) are characteristic on the coasts, the latter strongly affected until they disappear due to the contamination caused by the toxic discharges in the Agabama River during the 80s, carried out by the Ramón Ponciano plants , FNTA and the pulp paper basket Cuba.
The parrots (Amazona leucocephala), parrots (Aratinga euops), woodpeckers (Colaptes ferdandinae) and the pigeon tapirs (Tiaris canora) are the most abundant birds.
