This is a small plaza with shops and residences abutting it. There are a number of sculptures of men sitting on benches, where you can also sit along them, lending a quaintness to the area.

This square is fairly quiet but has a tavern and a restaurant. There are vendors selling souveniers which are the most unique I saw on my visit to Camaguay.

The plaza is nice and recalling movie scenes of Mexico actually. It's really how you expect it to be. Kind of poor art but really traditional! Nice

I personally loved Camaguey and we had a great time at this plaza (square). What a fantastic opportunity to talk to the locals and learn about traditional customs, dishes, cuisine, music, dance and more. It is the best place in town. Plaza San Juan in Camaguey and the Malecon in Havana are the two best public places in Cuba. We... More

The square is a historical and architectural complex of great... More

You must visit all the plazas in Camaguey and their are many, best to go by bicycle taxi. The drivers do this all the time for tourists and know every spot to take you.

This lovely square is at the heart of the original city of Camaguey. The buildings are beautifully restored - like stepping back in time.
