DescriptionBusy markets, exotic houses of worship and modern buildings give Port of Spain a cosmopolitan atmosphere. The city has been the capital of Trinidad since 1757 and the capital of both Trinidad and Tobago since they were united in 1899. From the hills north of the city, the coast of Venezuela can be seen across the Gulf of Paria.
Just outside of Port of Spain on the Eastern Main Road in Laventille is the House of Angostura, maker of several varieties of rum and its signature, Angostura aromatic bitters. The distillery features a museum, art gallery and butterfly collection; factory tours are available by reservation. Phone (868) 623-1841.
