  • As across cuba, stop on the beach Céspedes of the city, as well as its bulevar. This Congress places of life, of exchanges for the Cuban people, and they tell a piece of history also. Looking up, you will find a Phrygian cap at the top of the column, small french revolutionary symbol particularly appreciated...

  • From this location you can reach all the wonderful places of Santiago de Cuba! Advice for those who do not like walking take a motorcycle taxi at a modest price of cuc for each destination, you can connect to the internet when you purchase a ectesa card for the price of 2 cuc and that takes an hour

  • It's not enough, but in terms of architecture, Cuba has a great architectural heritage. This place is a beautiful testimony: the Cathedral... one of the gems of the city. If you are believers, it is an opportunity to also attend a religious service late in the day around 18: 00 but otherwise, access is free to discover the beautiful interior decoration. Next to the House of Diego Velasquez, now a museum that deserves a visit with a guide. This beautiful remains very well preserved, has a very strong Arab influence with the mashrabiya windows that have at least 2 interest... see without being seen, and promote good ventilation of the dwelling. Taxi drivers are there, at the corner of the Grand (Monumental...) Hotel in the place, available to take you to the Moncada barracks, must visit to do with a guide... possible in french or in other remote locations.
