A life well lived
The Cuban revolution left its mark in practically every corner of this beautiful colonial city. Visiting the city is like taking a journey in time through the history of the island with the most personality in the Caribbean.
Some people think that one of the greatest virtues of Santiago de Cuba is that it’s on the other side of the island compared to Havana. They say this makes it a more authentic and less touristy destination. Enjoy unique experiences in Santiago de Cuba such as walking along the popular Enramada Street or through the Tivoli district or resting in Céspedes Park and enjoying people-watching, the music and the authenticity of the place itself. Feel the revolutionary spirit in the Plaza Marte or the Moncada barracks, the most famous place in the history of the revolution. Both José Martí and Fidel Castro were laid to rest in the city's cemetery.
