About the Region
Sangre Chiquito is located in the region Sangre Grande Trinidad, Sangre Chiquito has developed tremendously as many land owners have invested in apartment buildings or plotted the lands and began selling. Most daily activities required by residents are conducted in Sangre Grande as Sangre Chiquito is located a very short distance away. Housing schemes have also been introduced into this area.
The name Sangre Grande means "big blood", and it has been suggested that the town was named for a battle that took place between the native Amerindians and the Spanish settlers. However, this interpretation is not supported by historical records. The true origin of the name refers to when, in the late 1770s, Spanish surveyors who were charting the island for the purposes of creating a map, found that the waters of two of the tributaries of the nearby Oropouche River were red as blood, hence the name.
