It was enjoyable in the town of Camaguey. But boring for the average person who doesn't want to know anything about History and the History of Cuba. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes, bring sun screen and sun glasses. No peddlers to worry about. Good food and excellent bands in the bars

This is more of a review of the square, Parque Agramonte. It's surrounded by restaurants, cafes and shops. Locals come out later in the afternoon to take in conversations in the shade. Great place for a coffee and people watching.

The plaza's and squares in every city provide lots of photographic opportunities and a way to understand the establishment and settlements of each Cuban city.

Beautiful church centrally located by a small park. Inside the church is renovated, clean with beautiful images. If you have the opportunity visit it!

This 300 year old Cathedral was restored before the 1998 visit of Pope John Paul II. This church was dedicated to Our Lady of Candelaria, the patron saint of the city. Its top is crowned with the statue of Christ. A chapel was built on its site in 1530. And do not forget the climb up the winding stairs to... More

They charge you to go up to the top of the bell tower. The view is worth every centavo. The church is well worth the visit. Very well preserved, very well loved church. You can see the working clockwork and is interesting as well.

Catedral de Senora de la Candelaria (1756) on the same site, where a chapel was first build in 1530 (destroyed by fire in 1616). This church is situated on the beautiful Plaza Ignacio Agramonte/ Calle Cisneros, in the center of the historical town. To visit the city and not climb the church tower, would be a major omission. The views... More
