The Independence's Year:



Constituted by the two islands of Trinidad and Tobago in the southern Caribbean far from the Venezuelan coasts.
The big Trinidad (4.828 Kmq), flat and partly covered by forests, is rich of oilfields and it owns one of the natural deposits of bitumen widest of the world (near Pitch Lake).
The small Tobago (300 Kmq), mountainous and partly virgin, is maybe the island most beautiful of the Caribbean, with transparent sea, splendid coral reefs (Bucco Rift), fantastic immersion places, as in Little Tobago and with the beach most famous of the world: Pigeon Point. It is known in Europe for the advertising of a well known rhum's brand.
According to the legend Tobago is the Robinson Crusoe's island; in any case it really seems that Daniel De Foe inspired himself to this wonderful Caribbean island to set the most famous shipwreck of the literature.
