Walking tour of Santiago de Cuba
Wander with a guide around Cuba's vivacious second city, visiting its historic, cultural and musical sights.
Rivalling Havana in its diversity and dynamism, the former capital has an electric cultural scene in its own right and displays a strong sense of its Afro-Caribbean identity.
The city's history is tied up with both the wars for independence and the Cuban Revolution, but began much earlier with its foundation by the Spanish in 1519. Their legacy is still clearly visible in the elegant colonial architecture and mighty fortifications that you will see on this walking tour, which winds along pretty cobbled streets past the Moncada barracks, the imposing fortress of Castillo del Morro and the city's most notable rum and cigar factories.
