After meeting at Hostal Medio, near La Vigía square, we will visit San Severino Castle, the Museum of the Slave Route in Cuba, which hosts the history of the slavery in Cuba and collect all the information about the African cultural groups in this area with influences throughout the country: Santería, Palomonte, the abakuá societies, plow cults, iyesá, Gangá, and other music-dance forms like the rumba, which gained international recognition through groups like Los muñequitos y Afrocuba. The Castle was the first and most important military fortress in the city of Matanzas, and is as old as the city itself. You mustn’t miss the unrivalled views over the Matanzas bay from the castle’s battlements – simply breathtaking! San Severino Castle is part of the Slave Route Project, Cuba, network organized by the National Council of Cultural Patrimony in Havana, Cuba.

The castle houses the first Slave Route Museum or "Museo de la Ruta del Esclavo" in the Americas. Its main attractions are its ancient rocks and the collection of pieces comprising 374 years of slavery in Cuba. Both take us on a journey back in time through the island’s past. "El Castillo de San Severino" should rank up high on the list of anyone touring Matanzas, as the prevailing witness to the founding of one of Cuba’s most important cities.
