One of the fourteen municipalities of the province of Pinar del Río which boasts the condition of National Monument, since it was where General Antonio Maceo ended his invasion from the East to the West (Oriente a Occidente) of the country, during the struggle against Spanish Colonialism in 1895.
The cultural legacy of this area has been maintained, thanks to the work and creative talent of those who have made it their everyday chore of art and literature.
Even in the year of 1866, when the Guildhall of Mantua was built, among its historical documents there were records of the existence of an important movement of amateur artists in that very same year.
Almost one hundred years later, with the triumph of the revolution, the advance of this municipality is significant in every sector of social development.
