Cienfuegos, Cuba-Dinner with Jorge-Black and White Wednesday #36

Print Friendly and PDF
Cienfuegos, called the "La perla del Sur" (the pearl of the South) was the last town we spent the night in before the 160 mile trip to Havana where we would be for six nights. Cienfuegos is located on the southern coast of Cuba and is an important center of trade for sugar, tobacco and coffee. This lovely city was settled by French immigrants from Bordeaux and Louisiana in 1819. Most of the day was spent walking the beautiful square of amazing Neo-classical buildings, but when the evening came, we dined at Casa Jorge y Alicia, a private home called a case particular. There we had a splendid meal of mojito's, a local soup and fire grilled lobster and shrimp.  Afterward, we danced to the music of a band 
playing traditional Cuban music. The morning came too soon and we were on our way to Havana!
