  • Castillo de Jagua is located in Cienfuegos
  •  

    French émigrés from Bordeaux and Louisiana founded the settlement of Fernandina de Jagua on a large, calm bay on the Caribbean Sea on April 22, 1819. In 1830, when it was upgraded to a town, its name was changed to Cienfuegos, in honor of José Cienfuegos, the Governor-General of Cuba. Fifty years later, it was proclaimed a city and, for its beauty, was called "the pearl of the south." By the end of the 19th century, it had become the fourth most important city in the country.,

    Considered the crowning jewel of Cuban architectural in the 19th century, Cienfuegos stands out for the perfect design of its streets and for the refinement and good taste of the buildings in the historic center of the city, which has been declared a national monument. When visiting, stop by the Casa del Fundador (the Founder's House); Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción (Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception) Cathedral; the Tomás Terry Theater; the Ferrer Palace; and the José Martí Park, which contains the only arch of triumph in Cuba.,

    Other attractions include the Prado Promenade, the Valle Palace, the museums of Naval and Provincial History, and the Reina (Queen's) Cemetery.,

    Farther out from the center of the city, tour the Nuestra Señora de los Angeles de Jagua (Jagua for short) Fortress, the Tomás Acea Cemetery and the Botanical Gardens.,

    In addition to these cultural and historic attractions, Cienfuegos has excellent facilities for scuba diving and other water sports, nature tourism and thermal baths.

      castillo de jagua
      Located a short ferry ride away from Cienfuegos, this 18th century fortress is widely regarded as one of Cuba’s most important military structures. It still has a working drawbridge and now houses a small museum... as well as its own ghost, the notorious ‘Lady in Blue

      Jagua Castle
      The fortress of Nuestra Señora de los Angeles de Jagua was finished in 1745. It is a solid component of the military architecture of the 18th century in Cuba.

      The Jagua Fortress
      The Jagua Fortress is officially named the Castillo de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles de Jagua and is near to the city, being completed in 1745 and therefore almost 75 years older than the city itself. Lying across the lagoon in Jagua and located on the western side of the Bahia de Cienfuegos, this important castle fortress once served as Cuba's number three, after the forts of Havana and Santiago de Cuba, and was built to protect to coastline against both British attacks and the threat of marauding pirates. The castle is today home to a small museum, which displays many intriguing facets of this fortress, such as ancient cannons and information about the military architecture. Ferries head to the castle each day and depart from a dock situated next to the Hotel Pasacaballo.
