Cuba Holidays Attractions
One of the Cuba Holidays Attractions is Matanzas City.
It is a neoclassical city located in the west part of Cuba. Forty kilometers away from Varadero Beach.
Matanzas’ name becomes from an event that happened in 1510 when a group of shipwrecked Spaniards requested help from the indigenous people.
The Spaniards were in canoes.
In short, when they reached deep water they overturned, only four people survived.
On the other hand, Matanzas has three rivers that run through almost the entire territory.
They led to the construction of several bridges.
As a result, these rivers gave rise to the nickname of Matanzas as “the City of the Bridges”.
Most noteworthy, the oldest one and still in use is La Concordia Bridge from 1878.
Another highlight is the Bacunayagua Bridge, one of the communication routes between Havana and Matanzas.
