Explore the beautiful colonial city of Baracoa, discover its beautiful enclaves and admire its historic fortresses


Baracoa, declared a National Monument, is a quiet colonial city of Cuba. It is nestled between mountainous massifs with a great profusion of endemic vegetation, which make the place an exotic place with crystalline rivers and cozy beaches. The city of Baracoa is the oldest in Cuba, since it was the first town founded by Diego Velázquez in 1511, under the name of “Our Lady of the Assumption of Baracoa”.
The confrontation between the natives of these lands and the Spaniards has crossed the centuries, making legends known as the one that tells the death of Chief Hatuey.

History permeates its narrow-cobbled streets, surrounded by old mansions that extend from the Castillo de la Punta to the Matachín Fortress, two of its most important attractions next to the Seboruco Fortress.
In the surroundings of this villa you will find incredible beaches, mountains and one of the best national parks in all of Cuba; enclaves that you should not miss while visiting Baracoa.
