Cienfuegos is not a roaring city in Cuba, but Palacio de Valle is a must see. This striking building is great to see, because of its mainly moorish influences. Highly unexpected in Cuba.

What a sight! We spent an afternoon at the rooftop where they have a bar and a group of musicians playing Cuban music. The views are astonishing and the ambiance provides a soothing and relaxing experience for you to unwind and close out the day. It is a beautiful building!

This place is worth a tour, if not for the views, for the architecture! Take a few minutes and walk through it and admire the beautiful decor. Then go up on the roof and enjoy the views and a cocktail! You won't regret it!

The story of this building is worth listening to for the five minutes that it takes to do. It must've been beautiful when it was in good condition. The guide is excellent - she speak Spanish, English and French fluently

Worth just walking through! We didn't die here, but the extravagant architecture is a treat! There is a fine looking restaurant on the ground floor and a bar with a view up top.
