Welcome to Cuboriente, a project showcasing Oriente Cuba’s religio-cultural places and spaces related to the island’s Africa-inspired cultural heritage.  Oriente is the easternmost region of Cuba and was originally an entire province during Cuba’s colonial era and into the twentieth century.  After the Success of the 1959 Cuban Revolution, the region was subdivided into present day provinces of Las Tunas, Holguín, Granma, Santiago de Cuba, and Guantánamo, yet the older name “Oriente” remains in popular use.  A major goal of this project is to enhance visibility of and familiarity with Africa-inspired religio-cultural traditions in Oriente.  Please visit our Orientation page for more information, or select a location below to view images.
