    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.

    “Go to La Reina instead ”
    Nothing special about this cemetery, except that it has some huge war monuments. La Reina has a much more interesting cemetery, I'd definitely go there instead!

    “strange but interesting ”
    Who would think to visit a cemetery on vacation? This is very interesting. Be sure to visit the fireman's memorial. It is BEAUTIFUL! Near the fireman's memorial you will find a grave of a woman who is believed to help women with having children. Wonderful history!

    “Beautiful in its own way ”
    Maybe it was a first timers charm as this was the first cemetery I've seen in Cuba, but I have to say this was by far my favourite. There is no fee to enter so you can just come and walk through deserted cemetery, enjoying the beauty of old marble statues. It's beutiful, even though in a bit of a... More
