The small town Fernandina de Jagua, modern day Cienfuegos originated in 1819 from the former Kaziken territory, in a lonesome/isolated and protected part of a large bay. In 1745 the Spanish colonial authorities had already erected a solid fortress which remains till today.
A coastal town with an interesting flair, the historic downtown puts the neoclassical inspired building on show. Former palaces and casinos like the Palacio del Valle, the Teatro Terry and the district around Parque Marti.
Location: directly at Cienfuegos large bay, at the end of Punta Gorda, with a view of the bay and the vicinity; only about 20 min by foot to historic downtown
