Observation Deck
Once Cuba's tallest building, Iznaga Tower was used to watch over slaves during the 19th century. The seven-story structure was built in 1816 and stands at 45 m (147 ft) tall. The bell that currently sits at the tower's base once hung at the top and was used to signify the workday's beginning and end, as well as prayer times. Visitors can climb to the top and take in views of nearby mountains and former sugar plantations below.

  • Worth a few minutes to see what the sugar plantations were like. Have to imagine the rich owner and the poor workers. Plenty of craft stalls.  more »
  • If you have a little courage to climb the stairs and you do not (o not too dizzy) go on, the view of the Valley is beautiful. Just below, a small local craft market where you can buy tablecloths embroidered or another. TO DO.

  • Long, the "slave"tower was the tallest building in Cuba. Tickets cost 1 CUC. On many levels it goes up on the Iznaga Tower, which has withstood many hurricanes. Once at the top, the former sugar cane plantation has my wonderful views over. Embroidered table cloths are sold before the Tower, those nowhere else say in Cuba.
