What you'll do

During the tour we will visit the places of greatest historical and cultural interest of Cienfuegos. We will walk along the Paseo del Prado and the Boulevard of San Fernando, where we will come into contact with the daily life of Cienfuegos and where the main shopping centers are located as well. The visitors will also enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the city and its buildings from the terrace of Hotel La Union. In the José Martí square, heart of the Cienfuegos historical center, we will learn about the founding process of the city, the only one founded by French immigrants in Cuba at the beginning of the 19th century. This is a magical place where visitors can admire the majesty of the buildings, especially the City Hall, the Tomas Terry Theater and the Cathedral, jewels of Cienfuegos colonial architecture. Later, we will visit the Cultural Center of the Arts "Benny Moré" and enjoy different art and photography exhibitions after visiting galleries and personal workshops of local artists. We will finish the tour enjoying a traditional Cuban cocktail and talking about a topic of common interest.

I am a lover of history, art and culture. I have been working as a professor of History and Anthropology at the University of Cienfuegos for four years. From my experience as a teacher, I realized the importance of knowledge of History and Culture to form values in people and make them understand the current Cuban society. As a tour guide, I propose this experience as a unique opportunity deeply to get to know the rich history, the heritage values, the art and the daily life of Cienfuegos, a Cultural World Heritage City. All this will allow the visitor to get in direct contact with the people of Cienfuegos customs, identity and soul.

Es war sehr interessant auf diese Art die Stadt zu erkunden. Insbesondere in das Hotel hätte ich mich allein nicht getraut.
