About  Mirador de Mayabe

On the outskirts of the city of Holguín, on top of a hill, is the Mirador de Mayabe (Mayabe Lookout), from where you can see the extensive valley of the same name that surrounds the city and where you can meet a very simpatico and popular character: the Burrito, or Little Donkey, Pancho, which drinks beer and chews crunchy chicharrones (pork rinds).

This unique facility was built in an exceptional natural location, surrounded by lush indigenous wildlife. Good-natured, heartfelt and personalized treatment along with area's natural attractiveness, are representative of Cuba's special character.

Casa Natal Calixto García

The Casa Natal Calixto García contains some of the belongings of General Calixto García, an important hero of the 19th Century struggles. It exibits manuscripts, personal items and weapons of the time, all excellently preserved. It's worth a visit if you're an aficionado of Cuban history, and you can learn more about the Ten Years' War.

Loma de la Cruz . Holguin

Loma de la Cruz

Exactly 456 steps lead up to the Loma de la Cruz, a hill named for the large white cross that has graced it since 1790. Formerly known as Cerro de Bayado, it changed its name after May 3, 1790, when Friar Antonio Alegria placed a cross on its summit to start a Catholic pilgrimage. From here you have a lovely view of Holguín and the surrounding limestone hills. There are also artisan shops and a snack bar.

Provincial Museum (La Periquera}

The museum, in the former Casino Español at the plaza's northern end, contains an exhibit of pre-Columbian artifacts as well as displays on the Revolution and the province's role in it. There is a beautiful popular legend that says that this building had a tunnel that tunnelled under the plaza and ended at the Cross Hill (Loma de la Cruz), where there was a fortress. Locally, the redbrick building is known as La Periquera ("the Parrot Cage"), because brightly dressed Spanish officers peered through its barred windows while the city was under siege by General García's troops in 1868.
