Matanzas’ Fun Facts
Founded in 1693, Matanzas dominated the cultural landscape of the 19th century in the country. Intellectuals of the stature of Plácido, José María Heredia and José White combined literary gatherings with music, transforming the colonial territory in what was called “The Athens of Cuba”.
An imposing concrete structure 313.5 meters long, 16 wide and 110 high at the entrance to Matanzas connects it with the neighboring province of Mayabaque. Known as the Bacunayagua Pass, the bridge is one of the seven wonders of Cuban civil engineering.
And Matanzas also has a mummy! It lays in the Palacio de Junco, and it is the “little treasure” of the town. At the time of its discovery in 1964, the mummy was well preserved with all of its internal organs. In life she had been a woman, Josefa Ponce de León, who died at the age of 56.
But Matanzas’ surprises do not end there. It turns out that camels were imported in the 19th century (and not precisely as a means of transport). The idea was to use them to move the freshly cut sugar cane towards the mill, taking advantage of these animals’ physical strength. The first of these ruminants arrived in Cuba in 1834, but it is not known exactly how long this practice lasted.
Created and operated entirely by Cuban entrepreneurs, Mandao seeks to take advantage of the availability mobile of the Internet and the need for restaurants to serve their customers at home. We also offer deliveries from agricultural markets and farm to table baskets with products from local farmers.
