The capital of the province is the city of the same name which lies 662 km east of Havana. The city, originally named Las Tunas was, in 1869, renamed Victoria de las Tunas, a title given it by its Spanish governor to commemorate a colonial victory over the Cubans. The name reverted to plain Las Tunas in 1895, following the battle in which the Cubans finally took back the city. These days Las Tunas is a centre for trade in the production of sugar and chemicals. There are two tourist hotels one (Hotel Las Tunas) located on the outskirts of the city, the other (Hotel el Cornito) 10km southwest.
A thorough exploration of the city’s places of interest can be undertaken in the time it takes to mix a mojito and drink it. Cerro Caismimu, a hunting preserve around 18km outside the city, is worth a visit if you’re that way inclined. Alternatively, the beaches around Playa Covarrubias on the north coast of the province are good for sunbathing, swimming and scuba diving.
The city itself is a friendly place and if you walk around the central square area you are bound to attract attention from curious locals.
