Port of Spain in detail

Port of Spain is a seaport on the north-west coast of the island of Trinidad. The capital and commercial centre of Trinidad and Tobago, exotic Port of Spain has architecture from around the world from Hindu temples to gingerbread rococo.


Sights of interest include the Royal Botanical Gardens, the National Archives, the National Museum and Art Gallery, with a collection of historical and natural history items and fine art. There is also an Anglican cathedral dating from 1816 and a Roman Catholic cathedral consecrated in 1832.
Trinidad, home of carnival and the steel-band, is an astonishing melting-pot of peoples and cultures African, Oriental, Indian, European and New World. Home to an interesting array of South American flora, as well as more than 400 species of birds, you can visit the Caroni Swamp, home of the scarlett Ibis and cruise the mangrove channels or the Asa Wright Nature Reserve - a birders paradise!
A Native American village known as Conquerabia occupied the site when the Spanish settled in the area in 1595 and renamed the community Puerto de Espana. After the British took control of the island in 1797, the settlement's name was Anglicized to Port of Spain. The city served as the capital of the Federation of the West Indies from 1958 to 1962, before the grouping was dissolved.
