    Santiago de Cuba, located at some
    900 kms from Havana, is Cuba's
    second largest city. Its economic,
    cultural and social importance in
    Cuban history is unquestionable.
    Santiago is also the capital of the
    province with the same name.
    Surrounded by the green mountains
    of the Sierra Maestra range and the
    Caribbean Sea, Santiago is unique
    in its geography and beautiful
    landscape. Its surroundings make
    the city one of the most important

    tourist agencies will offer visiting
