Santiago de cuba
in Cuba’s eastern Orient and on the Sierra Maestra mountain range, is known as the home of afro-Cuban music, dance, and magic. The Son spread out from here at around the time that the great landowner Facundo Barardi, founded a rum factory in the late 18th century. Santiago later made its mark in history when a lawyer’s son, Fidel Castro started a revolution and in 1959 as the new leader, gave orders to storm Havana.
You can still feel an aura of the past and the tranquility of the Santiagueros in contrast to Havana’s hustle and bustle. Santiago is a good starting point for all sorts of daytrips in the area. One of the closest destinations is Virgen del Cobre, which the pope also visited during his stay in Cuba, a new chapter in Santiago’s long history. Every July the Rumbón takes place - Santiago’s carnival which draws in home-grown tourists to party wild during these days.
