  • This is a nice building in a style you would not expect in Cuba. The rooftop bar has a great view too.
  • We visited Cienfuegos because of Palacio de Valle.we came early at 8:30 am but it opens at 10.we couldn't wait because there was a flight we wanted to catch in Havana. However, we went inside and it was so beautiful from outside and inside.didnt disappoint us.
  • A great example of local architecture, with a bar on top.
  • Top recommendation for rooftop cocktails at sunset. The food in the restaurant is pretty average and there isn't much for vegetarians, so maybe eat somewhere else before or after you hit up this place. Don't be shy to walk in a go right up the stairs to the rooftop - there's a bar up there and the interior of the building is incredibly intricate and well worth exploring.
  • Only a limited part of the palace is open for visitors. However, you can get all the way up to the roof and enjoy a good view, an OK mojito and some music from an unmotivated life band.
