Jagua Castle, Cienfuegos

(4.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Built and fortified to protect its bay from 16th and 17th century pirates, Jagua Castle has now become a well restored museum, with many original features still present including its still functioning drawbridge. Catch a ferry to the bay to look at the weapons of the era and models of pirate ships, with tour guides available to spin tales from those buccaneering times. Lush green forests surround the site and views look out over a beautiful bay, so bring a camera for photo opportunites. Put Jagua Castle into our Cienfuegos family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Cienfuegos.
