Exploring Soroa Cuba
Soroa, a natural place of great beauty and variety, considered a Biosphere Reserve in western Cuba.
Visitors from all over the world come to this wonderful place to admire and enjoy the beautiful work that nature created in this abrupt place, surrounded by mountains and rivers.
Soroa gets its name from two Spanish brothers, Lorenzo and Antonio Soroa Muñagorri, who arrived in those places in 1856 with the illusion of making a fortune.
They bought the La Merced coffee plantation there, later they bought the Neptuno, San Luis and San Ramón de Aguas Claras coffee plantations, a fact that motivated the area to be named with the surname of the owners over the years, but it was not made famous thanks to the Soroa brothers, but rather to the abrupt nature that brought other people there.
