Arrival and accommodation in the reserved rooms in a Casa Particular. Free time to visit the city. Overnight in Casa Particular

Cienfuegos, the Pearl of the South, stands at the bottom of a bay, at the entrance of which is the Jagua fortress built in the year 1745 by the Spaniards and which represents one of the most impressive military structures on the south coast of Cuba as protection from pirates of the Caribbean. The historic center was declared a World Heritage Site in 2005, and the Tomas Terry Theater, a small jewel with horseshoe-shaped stalls and two wooden stages, was declared a National Heritage by the Cuban government in 1978. The only city in Cuba to be founded by the French from Louisiana, Cienfuegos is one of the main ports of Cuba, mainly active in the sugar, coffee, and tobacco trade. The first to settle in the Cienfuegos area were the Taino Indians who named their new land Cacicazgo de Jagua – an indigenous word meaning “beauty”. In 1494 Christopher Columbus discovered the Bahìa de Cienfuegos during his second trip to the New World and 14 years later, Sebastian de Ocampo passed through here on the occasion of his circumnavigation of the island.

If the nineteenth-century architecture and the peaceful position on the sea contribute to creating a pleasant atmosphere, the same cannot be said of the maze of industries that surround it. Alongside the Bahia de Cienfuegos, there is a huge shipyard, the bulk of the Cuban fishing fleet, a factory that produces nitrogen fertilizer, a cement factory, a refinery, a thermal power plant and the only Cuban giant nuclear power plant abandoned in the 90s when the Soviet money ran out. Fortunately for travelers, pollution has not yet reached the city center.
