Santa Clara is the capital city of the province of Villa Clara and a great starting point for visiting almost every part of Cuba. The city was founded in 1689 by several families memorialised by a monument formed by columns in the square of the Iglesia del Carmen Church. In 1692, the city grew very quickly due to a great fire that emptied the city of Remedios, moving the population to Santa Clara.

The famous city of Che is not only well-known for its grandiose monuments but also for its lively atmosphere. This so called “liberal city” has a really energetic nightlife. It houses the second most prestigious university in the country, so it has an academic and youthful atmosphere, mixing music, theater and dance made in Cuba for Cubans, as well as impromptu concerts, drag shows and heavy metal gigs.
