Cienfuegos

Cienfuegos, or if being translated into English becomes “One Hundred Fires”, is known as the Pearl of the South in Cuba. UNESCO has put Cienfuegos on the World Heritage List as the best example of the 19th-century early Spanish Enlightment periode in urban planning. The city is beautifully located next to Bahia de Cienfuegos that connected to Guanaroca Lagoon, in the border of Villa Clara Province. We passed by the city for lunch on our way from Santa Clara to Bay of Pigs. It was a worth stop-over, the city was pretty 🙂

  1. I love your photos of Cuba…different from the others I have seen. Your photos share the beauty, architecture and a glimmer that I do not see much…These shots are so crisp.
