Santiago de Cuba - Cuba Trip

The news today is all about the thawing of relations between the US & Cuba.
It's about time. I visited Cuba in 2010/11. Lovely people.

Santiago de Cuba was the fifth village founded by Spanish conquistador Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar on July 25, 1515.
The first cathedral was built in the city in 1528. From 1522 until 1589 Santiago was the capital of the Spanish colony of Cuba.

The city was plundered by French forces in 1553, and by British forces under Christopher Myngs in 1662.
Casa de Diego Velazquez - this is the oldest colonial house in Cuba & probably North America.
Address: Francisco Vicente Aguilera, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba
Dating from 1522 - it was the residence of the Island's first Govenor.

 Excellent Beer.
