Very arty plaza, with lifesize statues (of three very realistic gossipping ladies) and a handful of quite good restaurants. Do visit the one truly great art gallery with the works of Martha Jimenez. She'll steal your heart.

Take in the atmosphere and peacefulness in the late afternoon, however if you are lucky apparently in the early morning the chap who reads his newspaper comes and sits next to the statue that is modelled on him!

A bit away from the centre, but well worth a visit (we took a bicitaxi). A couple of art galleries and some lovely sculptures. Go have a "chat" with the groupf of gossiping ladies in bronze. They are beatifully crafted.

Every time we've visited Plaza del Carmen, I'm struck by what a pretty little plaza it is in a pretty little town, Camaguey. The buildings around the Plaza have been spruced up and look very nice. There are good restaurants to dine in, e.g. Restaurant 1800. And interesting little shops to poke around in, e.g. Galeria Martha Jimenez.

The statuary here is great, the galleries are wonderful and you have to visit Martha Jimenez. There is a really nice cafe here, cobblestone streets, and like everywhere in Camaguey, you can walk. BTW you will want to take photos with the statutes

Supposedly not too many tourist visit this remarkable part of Camagüey — indeed, we were the only ones. The church, Iglesia de Nuestra Seniora del Carmen, is almost 200 years old and was restored several years ago. Adjacent is the building of the old convent, now housing offices of the City Historian, and a school. The church has two towers,... More

Of course this is a must when visiting Camaguey. Just take a picture of the old guy who was modelling 12 years ago and still looks similar. Just pay him a CUC, he also has to make ends meet... Then join the group of gossiping women, you're free to tell them anything. And also visit some art galeries, really in... More

We enjoyed the life sculptures in the plaza. The church was interesting. There a couple famous art galleries there that should not be missed. We spent at least a couple hours visiting the square and the surrounding galleries.
