BRIEFING
Experience an old colonial-architectural fishermen village next to the sea. One of the first villages ever founded in Cuba and also named The White Village for all the sparkling-white facades of its colonial architecture and completely tiled-ceilings, narrow streets and joint houses where people don’t only share the neighborhood but also their own lives. Hostess of the International Low-Budget Film Festival, it has a beautiful lookout where anyone can appreciate the beauty of the whole city contrasting in colors and forms with the city bay and the skyline. Architectonic old monuments like “El Cuartelón”, “Fuerte Fernando VII” and “San Fulgencio Church” embellish the village matching old with new style. This fishermen village welcomes very friendly all the visitors.
