The city of Cienfuegos is the most beautiful of the southern coast. It is called “La Perla del Sur” (The Pearl of the South). The imprint of French families, to whom belongs the credit of having built this city, is evident in the perfect rectilinear layout of its streets.
The excursion starts with a walk through oldest part of the city of Cienfuegos founded in 1819, which has been declared by UNESCO World Cultural Heritage in 2005 in recognition of its architectural and heritage values. Visit José Martí Park, the Purísima Concepción Cathedral, the Tomás Terry Theatre, the Cuban Arts and Crafts Foundation, the El Palatino Inn, the Provincial Museum and the La Unión Hotel.
The tour continues along Prado Avenue, the longest street in Cuba, which hugs the city’s beautiful Jagua Bay before leading to the Punta Gorda residential district. See the Cienfuegos Club, a building that recalls the best local nautical traditions and is now used for a variety of purposes. The tour winds up at Palacio del Valle, a jewel of 20th-century architecture.
