Manzanillo, known as the Pearl of the Guacanayabo, was founded in the 18th century, concretely in 1874, and is considered, in addition to one of the most important and populated cities in the province, the main port of Granma and the second of Eastern Cuba, since the Guacanayabo Gulf bathes its coast.

Due to its special conditions, it is one of the warmest areas in the country; not even the fact that it is a coast city relieves the strong heat.

Manzanillo wakes up the interest because of the variety of its architecture, quite slovenly, in which you can find oriental motifs with Neo-Moorish cuts, cabins by the beach or an Andalucian air on its constructions. Among its most emblematic buildings out stand the City Bank of New York of Manzanillo, dating from 1913.

Nowadays the industrial sector is the main economical support of the city, but there was a time, since its foundation to 1950 in which this nourished from the benefits of its illicit negotiations with pirates.

Manzanillo is also famous for its samples of patriotic fervor, as supplying an important amount of weapons and people to support Castro’s Revolution, maybe because of their longings of autonomy were segregated by the Americans just 30 years after achieving the independence from Spain.

In Manzanillo was born the sound, circumstance that makes the city very special, since it its the best known international dance in Cuba. If you decide to visit Manzanillo and get lost on its Caribbean night, you will listen to this music, dark and fascinating, in every corner of the city.

Neither will you avoid the sound of the street organs, which are preserved in the city from the beginning of the 20th century.

Manzanillo counts with a music group, the Manzanillo Original Orchestra, which plays traditional music and has moved the Cuban sound to countries of different continents.
