Siparia is a town in southern Trinidad, in Trinidad and Tobago, south of San Fernando, southwest of Penal and Debe and southeast of Fyzabad. Also called “The Sand City”, it was originally a non-Mission Amerindian settlement.
Siparia grew to be the administrative centre for the Saint Patrick County, and later the Siparia Regional Corporation. Today it is a commercial centre and market town serving the surrounding agricultural areas and oil fields.
Siparia is home to Trinidad & Tobago’s first female Prime Minister (2010-2015) and now opposition leader Mrs. Kamla Persad Bissessar.
