Lonely Planet guides says...

(about Santiago de Cuba)

"Nowhere else in Cuba will you find such a colorful combination of people, or such a resounding sense of historical destiny. Diego Velazquez made the city his second capital, Fidel Castro used it to launch his embryonic revolution, Don Facundo Bacardi based his first ever rum factory here and just about every Cuban music genre from salsa to son first emanated from somewhere in these dusty, rhythmic and undeniably sensuous streets."
