In the oldest Spanish-era settlement of Cuba, Remedios, Caribbean vibes are most happening.
The cozy town of Remedios in the revolutionary province is far from boasting the flamboyance of colonial swagger. But, it knows how to keep travelers satisfied with pockets of surprise at every corner. Remedios is the oldest Spanish settlement in the region. When wandering its cobblestone streets flanked with pastel houses, you will stumble across radiant plazas and sublime buildings. They embody the quintessential Caribbean vibe in their landscaping. Beyond what meets the eye, Remedios is home to a lively community turning the town’s social scene into a memorable experience.
The city’s most dazzling building is indisputably San Juan de Bautista. It is a church that is almost central to every religious and celebratory event. Although much of its current look is owed to extensive renovations in the 1700s, the church preserves its original colonial style. There are several statues dedicated to the patrons and saints of Cuba. And, the pictures depict the ageless tradition of the phenomenal Las Parrandas festival. It has been an essential part of its annual agenda, painting the city in a riot of sights and sound each year at Christmas time. The oldest festival of Cuba makes it an intoxicating time to visit the city. But, the stories surrounding it keep visitors captivated any time of the year.
Isbell II square at the town center serves as a focal point of its rackety charm. Seek it out for the sheer wow factor, and marvel at fascinating buildings. You can enjoy a refreshment in one of the picturesque gazebos. With two churches, countless monumental buildings, and emerald palm trees, the main square is a mix of architectural delight and leisure time.
