This is the main plaza downtown where you'll find the Cathedral, the Provincial Government building, Tomas Terry Theatre and a few other significant downtown landmarks. There are plenty of benches and shade trees here, so you can sit and people watch or take photos to your heart's content. Be aware, however, that it's tourist central, so you will probably have...

You will also see a monument to Jose Marti with the marble lions around it. Don't forget to see the Teatro Tomas Terry which is a fabulous theatre built in the 1880's by a... More

This is a nice spot to rest and admire the surrounding buildings. We were grateful to find a place to sit in the gazebo to rest our feet and enjoy the shade.

The plaza is a nice place to walk around and admire the old buildings. We also stopped in at several of the art galleries. Trinidad has some very talented artists and it was very interesting to see the different styles of art presented at the various galleries at the Plaza.

The Arch of Triumph, dedicated to Cuban independence, gives the Plaza Jose Marti a very distinctive look. A marble statue of Jose Marti is in the center of this lovely square in the heart of Cienfuegos. Surrounding the square on all sides are many magnificent buildings.
