It will always be a guarantee for visitors looking for quiet and comfort. Santiago de Cuba has been privileged by its historical evolution. In the city are located two of the Cuban sites honored by the UNESCO with World's Heritage titles: The San
Pedro de la Roca (el Morro) castle and the ruins of the first French coffee plantations at La Gran Piedra. There is also the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery,
the 26 de Julio Historical Museum and the Siboney State, all of them having a deep historical relation. All of them are part of the region's attractions along with Granma Key and Baconao Park.
There are many other things that make the people of Santiago to be full of pride: to be the cradle of almost all Cuban musical genres par excellence
in a country where music is the soul and root of everything, the carnivals that take place every July and its rum. Also the ¨Party of Fire¨ and the already traditional ¨Caribbean Festival¨. The Santiago de Cuba region, having all the necessary infrastructure to develop events and congresses tourism, has
also a sea and mountain environment which are all the necessary conditions to develop nature and adventure tourism, trekking, sea related activities
