Museo Municipal del Fuerte Matachín Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Located in the old Fort Matachín, this museum provides the ideal opportunity to learn more about Baracoa. Among other topics, it traces the history of the Taïnos Indians, a pre-Columbian people who settled here two centuries before the Spanish. It also recounts the legend of "Pelú", and the misery this bushy-beaded vagabond inflicted on the town in the late 19C, ever since when this character has been the embodiment of all the calamities experienced by Baracoa and her inhabitants.
