Santiago de Cuba
Santiago de Cuba is the second most important city in Cuba after Havana, and the second largest as well. The region is closely linked to the Cuban Revolution, since it was there, in the mountains of the Sierra Maestra, where the armed struggle led by Fidel Castro began.
Santiago de Cuba is famous for its cultural life, cradle of important musicians such as Compay Segundo and Eliades Ochoa, and traditional dances such as son. This city is the seat of one of the popular festivals most awaited by Cubans: the carnivals.
