Cuba, famous all over the world for its beautiful beaches, tropical climate and natural wealth, treasures many interesting sites for those looking for urban tourism.

In addition to traditional tourist options, the country's architectural wealth is a special incentive to remember the island's colonial past, consisting of several buildings from that epoch.

One of those scenarios is the Cuban capital, the main tourist destination in the country, especially its historic heart, which is visited by thousands of foreign vacationers every year.

Havana was founded on its current location in 1519, and many of its buildings have survived the passage of time and can be admired today.

They create a very attractive combination of architectural styles, including baroque, neogothic, neoclassicism, eclecticism, art noveau and the modern movement.

In eastern Cuba, tourists can visit the town of Morón, founded in May 1543 and also known as the City of the Rooster, in allusion to the symbol of the town, a rooster, which is based on a legend from Spanish colonial times and has become a special attraction for tourism.

The town of Puerto Padre, nicknamed the Blue Village or the City of Mills, stands out in Las Tunas province.

As a singular element, one of few freshwater springs in Cuba is located off its waterfront drive, flowing into the sea and giving the town a distinctive touch for tourism.

Another interesting city is 500-year-old Bayamo, the current capital of the eastern Cuban province of Granma. It was the second village founded by Spanish Governor Diego Velázquez in Cuba.

Another important city in eastern Cuba is Camagüey, the capital of the eastern Cuban province of the same name, which was founded as Villa de Santa María del Puerto del Príncipe.

Also known as "the city of tinajones", Camagüey is famous for those large earthenware jars, which were used centuries ago to collect rainwater for human consumption and currently decorate gardens and parks.

Santiago de Cuba, the second major city in the island nation, is considered the capital of the Caribbean, due to its privileged location and centuries-old history.

Also founded by Governor Diego Velázquez in 1514, it was the Cuban capital until 1607, a period when the city was hit by countless disasters, including an earthquake in 1675 and constant attacks by corsairs and pirates.
