Santiago de Cuba
Santiago de Cuba is a cultural epicenter nestling an enthralling amalgam of styles, rhythms, and tastes.
Everything that contributes to the matchless character of Cuba coalesces in a harmonious marriage in Santiago de Cuba. The rebellious spirit of revolution and an eclectic Afro-Caribbean heritage is included. Embraced by the cerulean Caribbean Sea, the city is scenic as much as sophisticated. Yet, don’t expect an unflappable society governed by elitism. The community in Santiago de Cuba has chill vibes that will make you feel at home. It will make itself felt the moment you step foot on its bustling streets.
The entire region carries traces of revolution like the rest of Cuba. However, many more of the cultural kind continue to erupt in the hidden corners. The chaos and cacophony at its urban center dissolve suddenly as you dive into the inner streets. There, eye-catching buildings reveal the colonial charm. More hard-to-miss ones await on the coast. And, the immense Museum San Pedro lead the way. The fortress sits on the shore like a statement of Santiago’s ageless brilliance. It also opens a window to a different side of history: the violent years of piracy. The San Pedro fortress displays the relics of the naval history of Cuba within its walls.
The indisputable calling card of the country, tobacco makes a dramatic appearance here in Santiago de Cuba, too. Pay a visit to Fábrica de Tabaco. There, watch how local workers produce the aromatic cigars of Cuba. Before nightfall, head back to the city center and surrender yourself to the spicy tunes of rumba.
