Every town in Cuba seems to have such a plaza but this is one of the better ones. Well maintained with beautiful buildings, particularly the Teatro surrounding it.

This are is very well kept and organized. I went there during the carnavales and it was very peaceful. A lot of the town's historic buildings are around this plaza.

Pretty square with beautiful buildings and shady gardens in the centre of the otherwise somewhat non-descript Cienfuegos

Very good looking plaza. Colonial old time breathe. Mixed french/spanish style. It is worth to visit theatre and museum in the plaza. Buildings are in good condition, different than in Havana. Less crowdy.

The most important plaza in the historic centre of Cienfuegos dedicated to the hero and spiritual leader of the Cuban first revolution against Spain Jose Marti. The existing arch of triumph is said it was built because they were influenced by the French Revolution.The most important and best preserved buildings of the city are around this Plaza. Very vivid place... More

We thought Cienfuegos was going to be full of interest, and were a bit disappointed as it was not so very full at all. However, we managed to make a good time by meeting interesting people.
