Pico Turquino, Cuba’s highest mountain, and the surrounding peaks and villages of the Sierra Maestra at 1:50,000 on an excellent map from the Swiss publishers Climbing Map, with a profile of the main hiking route, street plans of the two local tourist bases, Bayamo and Santiago de Cuba, as well as of Havana’s Old Town, plus notes on Cuban history and revolution.

The main panel shows the highest part of the Sierra Maestra on a map with contours at 50m intervals, relief shading and colouring and/or graphics to indicate different types of vegetation. The map highlights a hiking trail from Alto de Naranjo to the summit of Pico Turquino and down to the coast at Las Cuevas, with a separate panel providing a km-by-km profile of the 25km long route. Local villages are annotated with symbols showing what facilities can be found there.

The map also provides:

- a road map of the south-western corner of Cuba including Santiago de Cuba, showing road and rail access to the mountains

- street plans of central Bamayo, Santiago de Cuba and Havana’s Old Town annotated with numerous facilities and places of interest cross-referenced to the accompanying lists

- a map highlighting the main sites of the 1953 - 1959 Cuban revolution, notes on the country’s history between 1902 and 1959, plus a table showing important dates in Cuba’s history between 1100 and 2006

Map legend and the historical notes are in English, German and Spanish. Names of places highlighted on the street plans and the chronological table are in English only.
