Santiago de Cuba is rich in things to do and see, with a rugged coastline, revolutionary landmarks, the country’s tallest mountain and a UNESCO Bio-Reserve (home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site), not to mention fascinating castles, forts and churches to explore.
Archaelogical Landscape of the First Coffee Plantations in the Southeast of Cuba
That’s the designation UNESCO gave to this World Heritage Site which preserves the ruins of the coffee plantations that thrived in this area over 200 years ago.
Casco Histórico Walking Tour
Santiago’s historical centre is well worth exploring and there’s no better way to do that than by walking the romantic streets of Parque Céspedes, with its gorgeous colonial architecture.
Climb the 454-step staircase for an unrivalled view of Santiago atop this 70,000-ton boulder teetering over the ridge of the Sierra Baconao, 1,000 metres above sea level.
