Private villas in Cuba: A walk through the city of Cienfuegos

Known as the Pearl of the South, the city of Cienfuegos is characterized by the characteristics of its bay and the importance of its port for the economic development of the country. The city is open to the Caribbean Sea by a narrow waterway that provides very safe access to the boats. In July 2005, the historic urban center of the city of Cienfuegos was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Unlike most of the colonial villas existing in Cuba during the 16th century, the city of Cienfuegos was officially founded by the French settlers in 1819, under the command of Don Luis de Cloudet. The village is practically not populated by slave labor from Africa, so the vast majority of the current Cienfuegos population is a descendant of Spaniards and Frenchmen. Those who are staying in the city of Cienfuegos, either in a hotel or in private villas in Cuba, are moved by the hospitality of their inhabitants, who are usually somewhat more serene than the citizens of other regions of the island, such as Santiago de Cuba.

Although the architecture of the city is eclectic, as prevails in the rest of the country, there is a notable influence of the neoclassical style, especially in terms of the decorative elements of the buildings. The urban system is one of the best implemented in the island. The streets have a symmetrical layout, in the form of grids and the avenues are wide and straight as in few parts of the country. The promenades, parks and representative buildings, whether old or modern, respond coherently to the architectural ensemble of the city itself.

Among its main tourist attractions is The Cemetery of the Queen, an imposing necropolis of neoclassical style that conserves its niches for burials, being the only structure in Cuba with these characteristics. Inside, the famous Sleeping Beauty statue is located, which has a similar sculpture in Genoa, Italy.
