Sagua La Grande

(Eng.)

 

Sagua La Grande, also known as La Villa del Undoso, is a municipality and city located on the north coast of the province of Villa Clara in central Cuba. It is located on the Sagua la Grande River.

The city is located close to Mogotes de Jumagua, a set of limestone cliffs. Many cays of the Sabana-Camaguey Archipelago are located off the northern coast of the municipality.

Sagua la Grande was founded in 1812 and established as a municipality in 1842. By the beginning of the 20th century, the city and its port (Isabela de Sagua), had grown to become an important commercial center. Presently, its economy is based on the sugar, chemical, mechanical, and food industries. Cattle raising and fishing are other important economic activities.

The general History of Sagua La Grande is concentrated in two great investigations: The historian Antonio Miguel Alcover Beltrán left to the inheritance of the events related to century XIX thanks to his personal interrogations to each one of the authors of history; and at the moment Pedro Suárez Tintín has been in charge to rescue all century XX and leaves from the XXI in his famous “Tintin Collection” that includes newspapers, books, photos, films and videos of all the historical events of the referred time.

In 2004, the municipality of Sagua la Grande had a population of 56,097. With a total area of 661 km².

The municipality is divided into the barrios of Baire, Chinchila, Este, General Nodarse, Isabela de Sagua, Jumagua, Malpáez, Oeste and Sitiecito

The city's wide streets and little traffic give it a calm atmosphere.

In recent decades there has been a lack of new construction. Consequently, the older buildings, left over from colonial times, are in a state of decay. One of the most beautiful buildings in this city, El Casino Español (The Spanish Casino) built in 1908, was the meeting place for the Sociedad Sagüera (Social Club of Sagua). The historical center of the city retains the neoclassic essence of its constructions and the layout of its streets.
