Cienfuegos

4.2
World heritage site · Waterfalls · Landmarks
Pearl of the South
The city of Cienfuegos sits in a scenic natural bay, attracting visitors from across the country and further afield since its establishment in the early 19th century. Despite its late arrival, Cienfuegos quickly developed on the strength of its port and surrounding fertile fields and, where other Cuban cities have stalled, Cienfuegos has weathered the economic storms that have hit the country. Displaying a distinctly French influence, Cienfuegos attractions include its period architecture, now protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
