Adjacent to the Hotel Jagua south of the Malecon, this is an amazing building, lavishly decorated in Moorish style.

. Ferris pg. 22. Wilkes later said that he had consulted “all the authorities on international law to which I had access, viz, Kent, Wheaton and Vattel, besides various decisions of Sir William Scott and other judges of the Admiralty Court of Great Britain.” Musicant pg. 111. Musicant notes that the availability of the law texts on ''San Jacinto'' were the result of the complex legal situations that were likely to have been encountered in its two year anti-slave-trade patrol of the African coast. '''Cienfuegos''' is one of the provinces of Cuba. The capital city of the province is also called Cienfuegos and was founded by French (France) settlers in 1819. ''St. Louis'' next severed the cable between Guantanamo Bay (Guantánamo Bay, Cuba) and Haiti; then cut the cable off Cienfuegos to isolate Cuba from outside communications. She joined in the bombardment of fortifications at Caimanera in Guantanamo Bay on 3 June; captured a Spanish merchant ship on the 10th; intercepted two British ships bound for Cuba - the ''Twickenham'' on 10 June and ''Wary'' on 1 July; and was present at the Battle of Santiago de Cuba on 3 July when the Spanish Fleet was destroyed while trying to force its way to sea. On 18 May 1898, Schley's Flying Squadron was sent by Acting Rear Admiral William T. Sampson to Cienfuegos to pursue the Spanish Squadron under the command of Admiral Pascual Cervera y Topete. When Sampson received news that Cervera was in Santiago de Cuba, not Cienfuegos, he initially vacillated, at first informing Schley of the rumor, yet requesting him to stay at Cienfuegos, then later changing his orders to have Schley investigate the situation at Santiago. On September 12, a hurricane watch was issued for the Cayman Islands, and the hurricane watch for the southern coast of Cuba was extended to Cienfuegos, with the portion of the watch east of Camaguey upgraded to a hurricane warning. That same day's evening, the Yucatán Peninsula was place under a hurricane watch between Felipe Carrillo Puerto (Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Quintana Roo) and Progreso (Progreso, Yucatán). This area included the resort cities of Cancún and Cozumel. The following day, hurricane watches were posted for Pinar del Río and Isla de la Juventud, and the Cayman Islands were placed under a hurricane warning. The watches in western Cuba and the Yucatán Peninsula were replaced with warnings at about mid-day September 13.
