Sierra Maestra (Urbana)

3 06 2011

The view eastwards along Avenida Victoriano Garzon, with the tower blocks of the Centro Urbano Sierra Maestra on the right, known to most people in Santiago de Cuba simply as the “dieciocho plantas” (eighteen floors). On the top two floors of one of these blocks is a restaurant (see review from February) and an ice cream parlour (see picture and review from January).

In front of the dieciocho plantas is one of the major interchanges for buses, camiones and maquinas heading to the east and north east of the city.

This is the road that is blocked to traffic each week for the Noches Santiaguerras.

In the background is the Gran Piedra mountain range.
