Cárdenas, Calle Calzada Cárdenas is a municipality and city in the Matanzas Province of Cuba, about 116km by air east of Havana. Cárdenas is the 15th most-populated Cuban city and the second most populated one not being a provincial seat, after Manzanillo.GeographyCárdenas is a maritime port town on the level and somewhat marshy shore of a spacious bay of the northern coast of the island, sheltered by a long promontory . The city lies between the sea and hills.A large quantity of asphalt has been taken from the bed of the harbour. A flow of fresh water from the bed of the harbour is another peculiar feature; it presumably comes from the outlets of subterranean rivers.There are mostly narrow streets, various squares and substantial and elegant business and public buildings, including the ornate parish church designed by Architect Rafael Carrerá, who also built the famous Palacio Aldama in Central Havana.The city is divided into the barrios of Cantel, Fundición, Guásimas, Marina, Méndez Capote, Pueblo Nuevo and Versalles.The world-famous beach resort of "Varadero" is part of the Municipality of Cárdenas.
