Magnificent Square!

So much history to be absorbed in this square. Quite the architectural wonder of Cuba with so much to see and do.

Though still in the city centre this plaza surprises by its calmness and nearly kind of rural atmosphere

Beautiful square with cobblestone, Tinajones and life-sized sculptures of camagüeyanos. The Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Carmen is worth visiting.

This is a lovely little town and this square is very beautiful. The street art is in the form of bronze sculptures inviting you to participate. For instance three buxom ladies sitting on chairs deep in conversation - and one spare chair for you to take and join in.

This is one of the quieter plazas in Camaguey. The crowds are sparse and you can get a photo of the church without people everywhere. There are also 2 restaurants and an art gallery. It's really charming and peaceful

Camaguey is Cuba without the huge tourist crowds of Havana. A winner, full of charm and friendly people.

The gallery for Martha Jiminez is in this plaza, as well as some of her bronze works. Good place for photo opps. A couple of restaurants as well. Did not have a tour guide but our Cuban friends explained a few of the details. Great late afternoon walk.

The plaza is very clean and tidy. We enjoyed the sculptures and the Martha Jimenez gallery. There were quite a few jineteros hanging around so be wary of anyone being overly friendly or trying to sell you something.

It's right on General Gomezz within walking distance of the city center (Plaza de los Trabajadores) down cobbled, narrow, winding residential streets. The colonial era buildings have been restored and are very nice and so is the church, my favorite of all Camagüey's temples. There are several, very realistic, bronze sculptures of people, a man hauling jars and several more... More
