Guide to Gibara
Gibara, named after the aboriginal word Jibá, meaning hump, was officially founded on 16th January 1817. Also known as La Villa Blanca, The White Town, this rather quaint city has a rich history & culture of which its people are most proud.

It has beautiful architectural sites, & neatly laid out homes, streets & parks. It is surrounded by lush countryside. Visitors discover the friendly & helpful nature of the locals (about 20k) is its biggest attraction.

There is, & probably always will be, some controversy about whether it was Gibara or Bariay Bay, in 1492, which first gave shelter to the ships of Christopher Columbus on his first trip to Cuba; and where he stated "It is the most beautiful land that human eyes ever saw."

If you are a bit of a latino film buff you should visit Gibara during the week it hosts the "Festival Internacional de Cine Pobre".

During the 19th & the first half of the 20th century, Gibara became the most important & developed port in the entire north eastern Cuba. It's railroad gave Holguin, Bayamo, Banes & Las Tunas access to traded goods. Gibara's economy today is based on textile production, fisheries, the making of snuff for export & domestic consumption, and tourism.

Tourists can enjoy wandering the street upon street of grand colonial buildings including the Fernando VII Fortress, Museum of Decorative Arts, History Museum, Natural History Museum, Casino Español (House of Culture), the theatre, Cuartelón Ruins, Cueva de los Panaderos, Calixto García Square & its miniature replica of the Statue of Liberty.
