The place has a small museum concerning the revolution but it is the tower and the climb to the top who makes it worthwhile to go, nice view on trinidad and the hills

It's free to visit the tower and the accompanying museum. The stairs to the top of the tower start off okay and get a little narrower closer to the top. You get some great views so it's definitely worth it. If you don't fancy going...More

We spent time in the tower and the building. The museum was very interesting, so was the view from the top and from little windows on the half landings. You can not be in Trinidad and to visit this building. The only thing is the...More

We had an excellent time looking round the tower and buildings of the Convento de San Francisco de Asis and the cathedral. You could see right across Trinidad and into the hills beyond.

An interesting museum, but not all displays are available in English. Some larger tanks and items in the internal square of the museum. It is free to visit, and so is the tower, which is definitely worth climbing up to get some beautiful 360 views...More

We visited the Museo de los Bandidos based in it, which gave us info not easily available otherwise, and from the tower and terraces of the beautiful building you've got great views of the city

Worth climbing this tower. It offers great views of the city and the surroundings. Close to Plaza Mayor

Sure it involves a bit of a narrow and rickety staircase but the views from the top are sensational. There is space for quite a number of people which means that you can sidestep the incessant selfies fairly easily. A great place to relax.

The museum is less worth visiting. But the site gives you the feeling of being in other ages. One of the must see.

Despite a VERY narrow staircase to access the tower, this is highly worth a visit if you are reasonably fit and narrow - larger or mobility-limited folks will not be able to fit up the stairs. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is...More
