Private Tour of Holguin
We'll meet at the Orígenes mural at the time of your choice, ready to start our private tour of Holguin. Before we start walking, we'll take the time to admire this relief mural that represents some of the most emblematic moments in the history of the city, with Captain García Holguín as the main character.
A few metres away, we'll see the Plaza de la Marqueta and the Cathedral of San Isidoro, a basilica that has sat here since 1731. Keep your eyes peeled for the Moorish details inside! Afterwards, we'll arrive at one of the most famous tourist spots in Holguin, the Plaza Calixto García Íñiguez. Here, we'll learn all about the city's importance as a trading centre in the 18th century.
Not far from there we'll find La Periquera, an old colonial building home to an object of great historical value called the Hacha de Holguín, or Holguin Axe, thought to have been created by indigenous peoples in Cuba. After visiting this monument, we'll set off for San José Park, a site that houses the oldest church in the city. Did you know that this temple was built by Franciscan monks?
To round off a fascinating private tour of Hulguin, we'll head up to the Loma de la Cruz viewpoint. The 458 steps that await us will be worth the climb, because at the top we'll be able to enjoy some breathtaking panoramic views of Holguin. We'll also learn about the history of the cross that crowns this hilltop.
We'll conclude our private tour of Holguin after three hours.
