La Farola Viaduct
La Farola is a viaduct connecting the city of Baracoa, first village in Cuba, with the rest of the cities crossing from South to North of the mountain massif of Sagua-Baracoa. The viaduct is hosted in the air at 450 meters above the sea level and it has a length of 6 kilometers which go all over the La Farola Mountain. After 20 months of construction, it ended up being opened in 1965. The scenic road has 11 bridges suspended over the abyss and is listed as one of the seven wonders of Cuban architecture. For the difficulty of its construction and the important function it fulfills by connecting and integrating with the rest of the island the city of Baracoa. Because of this, it has been declared as one of the 7 wonders of the Cuban civil engineering.

Castillo de Seboruco
This fortress, which now houses the Hotel El Castillo, dominates a hill overlooking Baracoa. It is a former castle looking out over red-tiled roofs, the town’s expansive, oyster-shaped bay and the landmark mountain called El Yunque (The Anvil), named for its singular shape. Although construction on it started in 1739, the fort wasn't finished until nearly 200 years later. Even if you don't stay here, stop by for the views of El Yunque and the city.

Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción
The Cathedral "Nuestra Señora de la Asunción", arises at the beginning of the XVI century in the village of Baracoa. At that time this church was known with the name of La Iglesia Parroquial de la Villa de Baracoa. The church is best known for preserving the Cruz de la Parra that Columbus supposedly used when he came ashore in 1492 to claim Cuba for Spain and Christianity. Indeed, carbon dating has confirmed that the cross was fashioned in the late 1400s and is old enough to have been brought by the explorer. It can be stated with certainty that this is one of oldest crosses (perhaps the oldest) in the New World.
In the Main Square is a bust of Hatuey, the brave Indian leader who resisted early conquistadores until he was caught by the Spanish and burned at the stake. There’s also a very lively Casa de la Trova here. It is worth wandering along the Malecón, the seaside avenue, from the snug Fuerte Matachín (an early 19th-century fort that has a small but informative municipal museum inside) to the Hotel La Rusa, which is named after a legendary Russian émigrée who over the years hosted celebrities such as Che Guevara and Errol Flynn.
