This is a lovely plaza and standard on the tour route, but worth the trip. It is on a pedestrian only street and cool bronze sculptures are on the plaza. We had a lovely meal in a nearby restaurant, as well. The church is lovely.

A wonderful and picturesque colonial square, Plaza del Carmen is filled with the bronze sculptures of Martha Jimenez whose gallery is located on one side (not to be missed). The church, Iglesia del Carmen (1825) was closed and we did not visit.

Just to walk and see. Watching and walking is my favorite. And in the meantime you can choose some nice place to have some beer or drink. Isn t it nice?

This small square is noteworthy by the pretty building surrounding it. The recently painted Church of Our Lady of El Carmen fronts the square.

Great food. Some of the best we have eaten in Cuba. Shrimp, Lobster, steak, were great. It is a large restaurant with great atmosphere. You can see a church out the window that is the only church in Latin America that has two towers.

I really like this quite square by day and by night. It has simply a nice flair. I found great also the real-size statues of Martha Jimenez in the square. There are a couple of restaurants around the square

I loved the architecture across Cuba from Spanish to French and even a little english colonial. This square is an excellent example including the church.
