 Tourism

Cienfuegos city, also known as "Pearl of the South" is one of the most tourist-visited cities along the country, being undoubtedly one of the most beautiful. It is the capital of the province bearing the same name, which extends around the lovely, big and quiet Jagua Bay. It was founded by French settlers hailing from Bordeaux, Philadelphia, and Louisiana. Worth-mentioning are its modern street arrangement and the beauty of its architecture, which, together with other factors, have made the city deserve the title of National Monument.
Its development was conceived to start from the arms square (today's José Martí Park) and so it started growing to become the lovely city it is today.
Delighting is walking along its Paseo del Prado, mixing with the people who pass by, and enjoying the view from its seawall that, despite being quite and peaceful, is neither less warm nor less picturesque than Havana's malecón.
Among the places of interest worth-visiting in the zone outstands the fortress of Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles de Jagua, built around 1745 and only one of its kind in Cuba's central region; the Botanical Garden, treasuring more than 1000 species; the Arc of Triumph, only one of its kind in Cuba; Tomás Terry Theater; and Tomás Acea Necropolis.
The natural wonders of Jagua bay make it an excellent spot for entertainment and the practice of water sports. The common presence of the shad makes it a preferred zone for those who like fishing. In this province, there are also more than 50 immersion points distributed along the beaches like those of Rancho Luna and El Inglés.
