We stopped here on our tour of Santa Clara/Remedios. There is an old sugar mill you can see with its history on display as well as old steam trains. Upstairs you can buy cigars and drinks.

We learned all about the culture of sugar cane processing and transport, and history of production. Additionally, there was a display of steam engines. It was fun to take a ride on the train to neighboring Remedios!

Our guide spoke English so that we could understand. Informational signs are in Spanish.…

We were the only visitors. So the old, but cute and proud guide showed us around. The tour was interesting and a bit funny. The information is only in Spanish.

This was an interesting tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the sugar industry in Cuba. While not now a working factory, the machines are still there. We took a steam engine ride to get to the tour.
