Walking the cobblestone streets of Trinidad under the hot tropical weather of the island, surely is exhausting, and that’s one of the many reasons people should follow the delicious aroma that comes from behind the doors of El Barracon. With wine bottles hanging with chains from the roof, its rooms were designed to reminisce the cellars where slaves were once kept, from where the name of the place comes from.
A group of musicians arrive in the afternoons, and with their jazz and blues synthesis, they transform the tavern into a perfect home for conversation surrounded by friends and family.
The rooftop keeps a special place for a popular Cuban tradition: roast pig on a spike. The carbon scent, raised since early in the morning, will make a place on every guest’s appetite for a taste of this exotic dish.
Open every day since 9.00 a.m. to 11.00 p.m. The tavern it’s located on Jesús Menéndez (Alameda) Street #222 between Callejón de Galdós and Amargura.
An oasis in the warm desert that Trinidad can be sometimes.
