After this portion of the tour, you will arrive into the historic city center and continue to see the highlights on foot. The Prado Promenade is your entry into the magic of this French-influenced UNESCO World Heritage Site. The wide boulevard will bring you to the Jose Marti Main Square or Malecon. Here you find the Tomas Terry Theater, the Cathedral with its famed stained glass windows, the City Hall and Ferrer Palace.
You will have a chance to see Villuendas Square and La Calzada de Dolores, Gloria Street and San Carlos Streets, all loaded wth interesting places.
Cienfuegos became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005 and this designation speaks to the bountiful amounts of architecture influenced by the French. This excursion to a famous city in Cuba not as well known as others will be eye-opening with its design and sophistication. Enjoy!
