The story related to this poultry was born from an Andalusian legend. It was about the rivalry between two neighbors and has endured from the colonial time.

You automatically think of a rooster if you mention Moron in Cuba.

This farm animal is the symbol of the city and its name represents services agencies, gastronomical sites and other public facilities.

It is located 16 miles away from the capital city of Ciego de Avila province. Moron means peace. Its citizens are humble, kind, hard-working, and young people are eager to foster tourism in an area full of natural, beautiful sites.

Therefore, tourism is its main source of employment.

Moron is also known for the Tarafa Avenue, Jose Marti Park, Reguero Theater, Railway Station, and many other places that make you think Moron is much more than a Rooster.
