La Brea “The Pitch”

TGU is located in verdant La Brea, in south Trinidad. The Spanish words translated, means “The Pitch”, and it is the home of the Pitch Lake, the largest natural deposit of asphalt in the world. The lake spans over 95 acres and is reported to be 75 metres deep. It is now world famous but the world first learned of the lake when British explorer Sir Walter Raleigh, used the pitch to seal his ships and prevent leaks as he sailed the Caribbean in search of El Dorado. Over the years, this lake has become an increasingly popular attraction in Trinidad and Tobago, some come to marvel at the natural wonder or to explore sulphuric warm water pools, where both flora and fauna thrive.
