Cuba - Granma Province (Chapter)
This is the Granma Province chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cuba guidebook.
Road-scarce Granma is one of Cuba’s remotest regions, with lofty tropical mountains dense enough to have harbored a fugitive Fidel Castro for over two years in the 1950s. Its isolation has bred a special brand of Cuban identity. Granma’s settlements are esoteric places enlivened with weekly street parties, and provincial capital Bayamo is among the most tranquil and clean places in the archipelago.
