Granma´s Architecture, Cuba

In Granma´s architecture predominate buildings from the first half of the XX century and although many have already been replaced by other constructions, several buildings in the city have the status of a national monument. The architectural style that prevails in the main cities of Granma is eclectic, although you can find buildings in Colonial, Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. The church of San Salvador de Bayamo, for example, originally built in 1613 and the chapel of Dolores (1740), next to the birthplace of Carlos Manuel de Céspedes, constitutes an important sample of what is left of colonial architecture. On the other hand, in Manzanillo you can find worthy exponents of Mozarabic and Mudejar architecture.
