Visiting Cuba - Holguin is often the first contact with this Caribbean Island
It is a nice city with a lot of parks and squares and located between two hills.The former inhabitants took an active part in the revolution.The greatest hero during the Revolution in the 19ths was Calixto Garcia - shown on this picture
Two little girls playing in front of the statue.
After the famous revolution -supported by the Americans - Holguin became famous for it's sugarcrane production - owned by the Americans and the United Fruit Company - one of the members was Angel Castro who made big profits in the business.Out of several "histoires d'amour" a bastard son was born - Fidel - and there goes the story - a story of love and hate against imperialism and capitalism.
- Pros:A quiet city in Cuba - a lot of parks
- In a nutshell:Nice experience as a transit to north/south/east and west
