For over two centuries, in recognition of its rich cultural life, Matanzas has been known as "Cuba's Athens." For obvious reasons, it is also called "the city of bridges." The city was founded on the shores of a beautiful bay in 1693. At that time, it was called San Carlos y San Severino de Matanzas. Its splendid buildings are eclectic in style.

December through April, is also the most popular time. The weather is at its coolest and driest during these months, yet it\'s still far warmer than North America and Europe.
In the spring and fall, it\'s off-seasons and this can mean fewer hotel amenities; some hotels may be closed entirely for repairs. There are, however, benefits to traveling in the off-seasons: lack of crowds and prices that tumble by up to 25%.
