Tour description

Fernandina de Jagua: Culture, Legends, Myths and Tradiciones

Cienfuegos is undoubtedly an enchanting city, a muse for musicians and poets. The city and its historic center are more than unique architecture, remarkable cleanliness and beautifully restored emblematic buildings. It is its sea, its history, its simple people proud to have a beautiful and well preserved city with its traditions and legends.

The tour is designed to visit Cienfuegos from the old to the modern. The tour begins at the Muelle Real (Royal Pier), a place where travelers from different parts of the world used to arrive in the past in old sailing ships. Then we will take the Santa Isabel promenade to reach the central park, a street where visitors and merchandise moved to and from the city's commercial area in colonial times. In the park you will learn about the main buildings that surround it and its monuments, you can also take a break to chat in the shade of a tree in the park or enjoy a drink or coffee if you wish in a bohemian atmosphere and surrounded by history. The tour continues along the Boulevard; the main commercial artery of the city and the place where you can enjoy the daily life of its inhabitants. We finish at the Paseo del Prado, making a visit to the statue in honor of the ″Barbaro del Ritmo″ our Benny More musician and son of this region.

La verdad que increíble!!!. Se nota cuando a alguien le apasiona lo que hace. No solo nos explicó sobre la interesante historia de Cienfuegos, sino que enlazaba con otra ciudades y momentos históricos de Cuba. Le preguntamos muchísimas cosas y sabe aportar datos para que no te canses ni un momento. Lo que podría ser una ciudad de paso se convirtió para nosotros en una ciudad clave para entender más la historia de este país.
