Popular Traditional Culture

The popular culture in Cienfuegos is a compendium of expressions and elements that reflect the customs, traditions, religions, arts and forms of expression that we have inherited from our predecessors through time. A culture which identifies us, that is the result of the mixing among natives, Spaniards, African, French and Chinese that when mixed, define what nowadays represents our local culture.

The presence of different ethnic groups and nationalities in the formation of the identity of the inhabitants of the former village of Fernandina de Jagua, currently Cienfuegos, made possible their contribution in the transculturation process their religious motivations, customs and other expressions of their culture that were transmitted and were assumed as of their own, from generation to generation.

The Afrocubans cults and the popular celebrations are representative elements of the most genuine and rooted elements of the traditional popular culture of Cienfuegos.
