Historic Center of Cienfuegos, Cuba

Rating: 7,8/10 (7682 votes)

This part of the city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city was settled gradually, and at first the French emigrants became its main inhabitants, who set the further direction of the city's development. Cienfuegos has become a major shopping center, and therefore the historic districts of the city were originally built up with shops of a variety of merchants: from fruit and sugar cane to coffee and branded tobacco products. Later, eclectic trends began to appear, and the city began to grow as a unique architectural project of the Caribbean. Since the 19th century, such architectural monuments as the Town Hall, the Ferrer Palace, a number of residential buildings, church schools, and a lyceum have been preserved here.
