VALLEY DE LOS INGENIOS
Take in sweeping views of three interconnected valleys, while learning the human history of 30,000 slaves who worked the sugar fields.
Three interconnected valleys, covering one-hundred square miles, make up the Valley de los Ingenios. The surrounding fields were the center of sugar production during Spanish rule in the 18th and 19th centuries. But bright views and landmark ruins play contrast to the area’s dark history when over 30,000 slaves worked the fields.
We’ll wander through the ruins and still-standing plantation houses as we learn how nearby Trinidad amassed its wealth.
