“Built in 1516 and one of the oldest houses in Latin America, the Casa de Diego Velázquez boasts sober lines enlivened by a superb loggia with lattice screens. Inside, the Museo de Ambiente Histórico Cubano exhibits a rich collection of furniture dating from the 17C to 19C, presented in chronological order so that visitors can follow the evolution of the Spanish style into something uniquely Cuban.”

“The Moncada Barracks was a military barracks in Santiago de Cuba, named after the General Guillermón Moncada, a hero of the Cuban War of Independence. On 26 July 1953, the barracks was the site of an armed attack by a small group of revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro. This armed attack is widely accepted as the beginning of the Cuban Revolution. The date on which the attack took place, 26 July, was adopted by Castro as the name for his revolutionary movement (Movimiento 26 Julio or M 26-7) which eventually toppled the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista on 12 January 1959. In 1978, Castro ordered the massive perimeter walls rebuilt and converted half of the main building into July 26 Historical Museum”

“Opened by Santiago's first republican mayor, Emilio Bacardí, this museum highlights the history of the province. History and ethnography are showcased primarily by native Indian (shrunken heads and Peruvian mummies) and Egyptian exhibits (base of a sarcophagus and funerary art). Another section is devoted to Spanish artists. Lastly, the museum also displays paintings from Santiago de Cuba and around the country, including numerous works by the landscape artist José Joaquín Tejada.”

“This gorgeous yellow colonial-style building houses a museum detailing the underground struggle against Batista in the 1950s. It's a fascinating, if bloody, story enhanced by far-reaching views from the balcony. ”

“Opposite Plaza de Marte there is a good place to listen to boleros and feelin'. The scene is a little older but the patrons and players show real love for the romantic ballads and tragic love songs.”

“A colonial small house which was the birthplace of one of Cuba's greatest Romantic poets and the man after whom the street is named, José María Heredia y Heredia (1803–39). Heredia's most notable work, 'Ode to Niagara,' is inscribed outside. Due to his pro-independence ideas he was forced into exile by the colonial authorities, dying in Mexico in 1839.”
