Unavoidable: The Grand Tour of Cuba

“You will discover there a multicultural nation, largely urban, even if  it has only one large city : Havana. The capital and the charming old town of Cuba has managed to keep an interesting mixture of Baroque monuments and Neoclassical, as well as an homogeneous set of houses. You will love also Trinidad, a rich legacy of the colonial Spanish architecture. We offer you a complete circuit for a perfect immersion in the Cuban culture, passing by the cities-headlights including: Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santiago, Baracoa and Santa Clara.” Nancy
