I wandered in here, but there is very little information about Santeria, and the people there were thoroughly immersed in their own affairs- which is fine. It did not feel like an 'attraction' as such, but more just watching people going about their religious practice.

Santeria is part of the Cuban culture. You can visit this place but need to have an open mind for the things you will find in there. Is a stop we recommend.

Our tour group stopped here during our walking visit of Trinidad, beautiful setting. Fortunately our tour guide was familiar with the meaning and significance of the items in the Santeria religion; without her knowledge it would have been a quick look and see.

This is a very interesting place to visit to observe the traditions of the Santeria religion and see how they worship

Easy to find if you know what your looking for because it is not advertised. Go thru to back room and see if the Santero is there to explain it. If not there then don't linger, nothing to see out in the open.

When I visited this place I felt dreadfully. The energy there is disturbing, due to the witchcraft that takes place there. Terrible. Beware, if you are spiritually sensitive, do not go there!

More of a museum than a real Santeria temple this place is beautifully kept and a rare opportunity for a tourist to get a close look (if somewhat sanitized I assume) at an intriguing religion.

If you have done a little research this location is helpful in understanding this amalgamation of an African religion and Catholicism

Santeria is a Cuban religion. The house is sparcely furnished with any indicators that would explain the religion further.

We came across this unusual baby doll in the centre of the room by accident will walking around the streets.Without any explanation, about this religion, we found it a bit disconcerting. Maybe a plaque explain the significance of a lone baby doll in the centre...More
