This cosy town also known as the archaeological capital of Cuba, treasures in its territory a historically valued site named Chorro de Maíta, where the largest aboriginal cemetery of the Antilles is located (it is an archaeological site and museum) as well as the Taina village (AldeaTaína).
To visit the Cultural Recreational Park (Parque Recreativo Cultural) is to live again a history of over 500 years. There is an exhibit showing 56 of the 108 skeletons that were found, among them the single scull of a European, presumably Spanish, that lived with the aborigines as well as that of a young woman adorned with golden attributes, pearls and semiprecious stones, so it is thought that she had an important position within the tribe.
Right across is the Taina Village (Aldea Taína), similar to those built by the people who dwelled in Cuba before the arrival of the Spanish, and that was conceived by a group of artists from Holguin, designers and specialists in this culture.
