Places of Interest in Villa Clara

One of the singular touches of Villa Clara is its proximity to the legendary city of San Juan de los Remedios, which was the eighth village founded by Spanish colonizers on the island in the sixteenth century.

The historic center of Remedios was declared a National Monument in 1980 and has its starting point in the José Martí square, also known as the Parish and Isabel II, surrounded by flamboyan trees. In the center of the city are preserved typical buildings past times, such as the house of the Royal Alferez and Las Arcadas. There are also two churches: the Nuestra Señora del Buen Viaje and the Paroquial Mayor de San Juan Bautista.
