  • Description Monuments: Mal Tiempo Battle Monument, Cienfuegos. Cuba

    This historical site, located in the municipality of Cruces, is within a park surrounded by a paved area that acts as an access to the obelisk. It has a stepped structure in a pyramidal form, and is located at the centre of the park surrounded by colonial ruins. On December 15th of 1895, the invading column of Maceo and Gómez started moving in order to penetrate the territory of Cienfuegos; and made camp in Cruces, an important sugar region of the country’s central area. In the settlement next to Mal Tiempo, the Spanish columns that were trying to cut off the advance of the Mambi troops, were attacked by the Cuban forces, producing a great battle in the middle of the Cienfuegos lands. This military and political feat covered the Invading Army (Ejército Invasor) with glory and dealt a hard blow to Spain’s aspirations of quenching the insurrectional struggle along the length of the island. It was declared a National Monument on December 15th of 1981.

    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.
