Cienfuegos is a small city in the Central Cuban province of the same name. This attractive port city was founded in 1819 by French settlers and this French influence remains evident in the local architecture, a combination of art nouveau and art deco. The city overlooks a magnificent bay which features immaculate coral reefs and provides sun and sand along with plenty of opportunities for diving, sailing and even swimming with the dolphins. Other natural attractions include a number of hidden caves, waterfalls, natural pools and healing hot springs. The historic city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is home to an impressive array of visitor sights including, among others: the Casa del Fundador (Founder’s House); the Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción (Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception) Cathedral; the Tomás Terry Theater; and the Ferrer Palace
