The rich historical traditions, the fascinating contrast of its landscapes combining sea, mountains and fertile planes and its prodigal nature are some of the biggest attractions in the Province of Granma, an extensive plane divided into two by the mountains of La Sierra Maestra. Manzanillo de Cuba is a leading port city in eastern Cuba on the Gulf of Guanacayabo of the Caribbean Sea, close to the delta of the Cauto River. It is a commercial center and the exportation point for the agricultural produce such as sugarcane, rice, tobacco of the Cauto plain. The city was founded in 1784 and was long a smuggling center involving British merchants from Jamaica. An attack by Great Britain on Manzanillo de Cuba in 1792 destroyed numerous Spanish ships in the harbor and led to the fortification of the city.
