About Port of Spain

Port of Spain, capital of Trinidad & Tobago, has an incredibly striking 'Red House' parliament building - originally designed in Greek revival style, built in panels and shipped over from England! Independence Square is a popular place to congregate and houses some of the city's finest architecture including the grand Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Seek refuge in peaceful Woodford Square, with its beautiful gardens and grand Victorian fountain or the city's largest open space, Queen's Park Savannah, spanning 260 glorious acres.

Port of Spain occupies Trinidad's northern coast between the Gulf of Paria, Northern Range and the Caroni Swamp. Northern Range is a string of hills with stark ridges and lush rainforest. The highest peaks are El Cerro del Aripo and El Tucuche, each over 900m tall. The 3278-hectare west coast mangrove area, Caroni Swamp, has 160 native bird species including striking national symbol, the Scarlet Ibis.
