Cante Alentejano, a regional form of singing, is popular in Cuba but it is spontaneous and seeing a performance can’t be arranged in advance. For the best chance to hear this cultural art form, visit the town’s taverns in the evening.

The Road

About 2km outside Cuba, a left turn off the main road at the Toros de Núñez sign is possible, but arrows don’t point this way. This route goes through private property and several signs warn of the danger of ‘gado bravo’ (aggressive cattle). Alternatively, stay on the road.

The off-road route via Toros de Nuñez is very pretty. In September 2021, all of the ‘dangerous ‘ bulls were behind fences. No traffic on this route and it’s easy to follow using the WP maps. At a couple of points the route is not the logical path. Lots of industrial olives and almonds as well as the cattle.
At the end of this path you must climb a metal gate (easy) and return to road for 3km - then to a path for 2km.
