Santiago de Cuba City Tour

From: $82 Inc. VAT

Santiago de Cuba may be referred to as Cuba's "second city," but it is no miniature Havana. Santiago has a culture all its own, famous for its blend of cultural heritages, sizzling music scene and nightlife, and its July carnival festival of music, dancing and general celebration. It is widely considered Cuba's cultural capital, home to all types of theater, poets, painters, musicians, art galleries and craft shops. Santiago is also credited as the birthplace of son, the traditional Cuban musical style that has greatly influenced Latin American music.

Santiago de Cuba City Tour Main Attractions

Parque Céspedes

This large and live­ly plaza is the heart of the city, filled day and night with peo­ple social­iz­ing, relax­ing, and play­ing or sim­ply lis­ten­ing to the ever-present music that per­vades San­ti­a­go; a large bronze stat­ue of local hero Car­los Manuel de Ces­pedes is at the cen­ter of the park, which is the nat­ur­al start­ing point for any vis­i­tor tour­ing the his­toric cen­ter of the city.

The house of Diego Velazquez

Cred­it­ed with being Cuba’s old­est house, this build­ing con­struct­ed in 1516 was once the home of Span­ish con­quis­ta­dor Diego Velazquez; now restored, it serves as a fas­ci­nat­ing muse­um of peri­od fur­ni­ture and antiques that con­vey the French and Eng­lish dec­o­ra­tive and archi­tec­tur­al influ­ences through­out Cuba’s history.

Santa Ifigenia Cemetery

The most pop­u­lar sight at this large ceme­tery that con­tains a vast array of elab­o­rate tomb­stones is the tomb of Jose Martí which is designed accord­ing to Martí wish­es that he be buried below the flag of Cuba and sur­round­ed by light and ros­es; an impres­sive chang­ing of the guard cer­e­mo­ny takes place sev­er­al times a day in front of Martí tomb.
