Project Description

Holguín, “City of Parks”

Holguín province is located on the north coast of Eastern Cuba. It is known as “The City of Parks” due to the many squares and parks that Spanish immigrants built there.

On October 10,1492 Christopher Colombus discovered Cuba and it is through the nothern coast of Holguín, a place known as Bariay, that he entered the Island. It is in this place when he said one of the most important phrases that remained forever in history, “This is the most beautiful land that human eyes have ever seen”

Also, Holguín province has great natural wealth and wonderful landscapes which make it an excellent place for ecoturism.

Near the limits of Holguín and Santiago de Cuba we find a place called Birán, the birthplace of the Revolution Leader Fidel Castro.
