The city of Cienfuegos lounges languidly on the expansive Bahia de Cienfuegos on Cuba's Caribbean coast. It has a French influence and feel traceable to the influx of French immigrants who arrived in the early 19th century fleeing a slave uprising in Haiti. It is known as the Pearl of the South or Cuba's Paris. The Paris analogy is a bit of a stretch but the city certainly has some interesting and attractive buildings. It received UNESCO World Heritage status in 2005 due to it's impressive architecture. It even has it's own Arch de Triumph.
The long Paseo de Prado (Prado), the main street, makes for an interesting stroll.
Cienfuegos Province also boasts the El Nicho waterfall in Parque Topes de Collantes in the nearby Sierra de Escambray mountains as well as the beach resort of Rancho Luna.
