Tavern El Barracón: An Oasis in Trinidad
Walking the cobblestone streets of Trinidad under the hot tropical weather of the island, surely is exhausting. This is one of the many reasons people visit El Barracón, firsty, looking for a couple minutes of chill-out, secondly, attracted by the singular decor of the place. With wine bottles hanging with chains from the roof, its rooms were designed to reminisce the cellars where slaves were once kept.
A group of musicians arrive in the afternoons, to perform Jazz and Blues rhythms. 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 Cuban typical food.
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.
