Interesting history. Great view of sea from rooftop bar. Not disabled friendly. Steep spiral staircase to rooftop bar. Marble staircase to second floor. Lovely antiques, marble statues, stained glass.

Cienfuegos is not a roaring city in Cuba, but Palacio de Valle is a must see. This striking building is great to see, because of its mainly moorish influences. Highly unexpected in Cuba. You can walk around for free, take a nice view from the...More

A lovely location on the sea this villa, now a hotel, is very unexpected and fascinates. A good place to stop for a mojito.

What a sight! We spent an afternoon at the rooftop where they have a bar and a group of musicians playing Cuban music. The views are astonishing and the ambiance provides a soothing and relaxing experience for you to unwind and close out the day....More

This place is worth a tour, if not for the views, for the architecture! Take a few minutes and walk through it and admire the beautiful decor. Then go up on the roof and enjoy the views and a cocktail! You won't regret it!

The story of this building is worth listening to for the five minutes that it takes to do. It must've been beautiful when it was in good condition. The guide is excellent - she speak Spanish, English and French fluently

Worth just walking through! We didn't die here, but the extravagant architecture is a treat! There is a fine looking restaurant on the ground floor and a bar with a view up top.

Call either Dolores or Yolanda at Havanatur in Cienfuegos at their office there. I don't have the number but it should be available on Google.

¡Hola! Mi nombre es Mercedes Peraza y viajo por primera vez con dos amigas más a Cuba. Queremos quedarnos en Cienfuegos del 13 al 15 de enero 2015 (dos noches), con tres camas (una o dos habitaciones). ¿Pueden indicarme si tienen espacio? ¿Cuál es el precio por noche? ¡Saludos!

El palacio se localiza en la zona de Punta Gorda en la parte sur de la ciudad intrínsecamente asociado con el mar. Debe su nombre al que fuera su dueño Acisclo Valle Blanco. Su construcción costó un millón y medio de pesos. Las obras se iniciaron en 1913 y la edificación diseñada por el arquitecto cienfueguero Pablo Donato Carbonell, fue concluida cuatro años después bajo la certera dirección del arquitecto e ingeniero civil italiano Alfredo Colli. En la creación de esta joya ecléctica de la arquitectura doméstica participaron artesanos franceses, italianos, árabes, y cubanos. La planta central del Palacio de Valle cuenta con un vestíbulo de estilo gótico-primitivo, un salón comedor de influencia mudéjar, una sala de música y juego Luis XVI y otra de visitas, con el artesonado en oro, estilo Imperio. De corte veneciano son algunas de las ocho habitaciones del piso superior donde se hallan dos salones, uno de estar y otro de estudios. Tres torres rematan la edificación. La primera tiene la influencia gótico-románica. Representa la fuerza. La segunda recuerda el monumento del Taj Mahal y simboliza el amor, mientras que la tercera es de estilo árabe y representa la religión. En la plataforma del techo también está asentada una glorieta que mira hacia la bahía cienfueguera.
