For a mappable view of mildewed Matanzas and the broccoli green Valle de Yumurí, climb 1.5km northeast of the center up Calle 306 to the recently renovated church dating from 1875. The lofty bastion perched high above the city was built by colonists from Catalonia in Spain as a symbol of their regional power.

The lookout near here has a couple of ranchón -style restaurants good for skull-splitting music and basic refreshments.
