  • The building is magnificent, despite presenting rooms closed to visitors by deterioration. The view of the Bay of Cienfuegos from the top floor of the facility is awesome!

  • The story of this building is worth listening to for the five minutes that it takes to do. It must've been beautiful when it was in good condition. The guide is excellent - she speak Spanish, English ...  more »
  • At the end of the long Avenue called The Prado you get to Punta Gorda and the surprise of this Moorish palace all tunnels and arches. It was used as a restaurant, but even without eat, you can appreciate it especially going up to the terrace where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the sea and the setting sun. There is also a bar for a stopover and Orchestra that entertains with Cuban music. For those unwilling to do all the walking path, you can take a taxi or waiting along the Prado a bus (guagua) to share with the Cubans.
