  • A friendly guide explained to us that they found a cemetery. They have a fairly accurate replica. It is free and a curious site

  • I was slightly disappointed by my trip - although to be fair, there were doing a lot of maintenance work at the time of my visit. I just felt as though I walked around and learnt almost nothing!  more »
  • This archaeological site is a sign of the existence of Aboriginal people in the province of Holguín. On this site are recreated many of their customs, utensils and lifestyles. Very interesting visit.
