Excellent place to go. The castle has been taken very good care of and they are promoting it with the tourists

It is a place to re live old way of the French and Spanish. A place I used to frequent as a child and loved every minute of it, crossing to Pasacaballos and back then taking the ferry across the bay to Cienfuegos. It is...More
