Gibara is a
municipality in the province of Holguin, where beautiful architectural sites
and lush landscapes are intermingled; in the margins of a bay with the same
name. In this city, known as “Villa Blanca” (White Village) because of the
predominant color of its facades, is held in April each year the Poor Cinema
Festival, which welcomes visitors from around the world. Enjoy the perfect
design of its buildings, streets and colonial parks that have earned it the

lodging Facilities) will provide excellent service, showing the pride of
belonging to a city that, although small, has a great history and culture.
