5 must-visit colonial towns in CubaThe colonial towns in Cuba are one of the biggest reasons why we decided to visit the country in the first place and proof that thereâ€™s more to this Caribbean island other than old cars, cigars and inviting white-sand beaches. These colonial towns are a great motivation to get out of Havana and the resorts of Varadero. Let us introduce the five must-visit colonial towns in Cuba: CamagÃ¼ey, Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba, Sancti SpÃritus, and Cienfuegos. Most of these colonial towns go back to early 16th century when the Spanish colonized the island, which means they are around 500 years old and carry a lot of history. The only exception is the slightly younger Cienfuegos, from the 19th century. These colonial towns include well-preserved historical centers and to attest their importance, 4 are included on the UNESCOâ€™s World Heritage Sites list.
