    Iglesia de la Santisima Trinidad

    The cathedral of the Holy Trinity was built between 1817 and 1892 and is the largest church in Cuba. Its major attraction is the wooden statue called the "Senor de la Vera Cruz". The building itself is quite simple on the outside, but it's nice inside.

    This church was constructed in the end of 19th century. On the same place there were earlier an old church from 1600, that got destroyed by a hurricane.
    A wood statue from 18th century, made in Spain, is an important item in the church. The statue was made for Vera Cruz in Mexico, but was left 1731 on Cuba after the fourth attempt by the ship that had come with the statue, without success due to hard winds, to leave the island.
    Señor de la Vera Cruz is now worshiped here.
    (It is a tradition in this part of the world to give different names to the statues of Christ)
