Cuba Cienfuegos Palacio de Valle

Cuba’s so-called “Pearl of the South”, French-founded Cienfuegos has long been a popular stop for travellers exploring the region. Lining the cliffs of a spectacular bay, the port city’s key position on the trade route between Jamaica and the cities of South America made it incredibly important to the Cuban sugar oligarchy, and has since become a major industrial centre for the country. With elegant UNESCO-listed architecture and French sophistication, Cienfuegos is a worthy stop on any Cuban travel itinerary.
