The Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción Parish, belonging to the Catholic Church, was built in 1803 in the central park of the city of Baracoa.

Its initial structure has suffered successive transformations until in 1905 it acquired the distribution known today.

Nowadays, it has been under an important restoration, but it can still be visit the relic hidden on its inside, the Parra Saint Cross, which according to the legend is the one planted by Christopher Columbus on its arrival to this lands, becoming the first Christianity symbol in the New World. If it is true that the proofs of the 14 Carbon the date of the end of the 15th century, the wood seems to be indigenous of Cuba, which will discredit the Columbian legend.

Visit the memorable church which is part of the touristic tour in the historic center of the city and admire the Cross which proves the evangelist missions of the first conquests.
