ISLE OF YOUTH
Baptised by Admiral Christopher Columbus as the Evangelist (La Evangelista), after its discovery on June 13th of 1494, it is located some 100 kilometres from the fishing port of Batabanó.
This is the largest isle of the 600 that are part of the Archipelago of the Canarreos and this island of a thousand names, as many have called it, was the target of pirates and buccaneers for four long centuries.
Starting from 1975 it received its present name. Its forest wealth covers some 56 per cent of its territory and although it lands are scarcely fertile, there are notable grapefruit crops.
Also abundant are deposits of marble and kaolin, whose industries show an acceptable level of development.
