Everybody seems to come here:- kids and parents, old and young, sitting, chatting, walking… and with the cathedral, Teatro Tomas Terry, City Hall (they didn’t let us in), fountain, statues… there is every reason to visit. And then there are plenty of benches, including some in the shade, to rest between visits. As befits the French antecedents of the town,... More

If you go to Cienfuegos, you will not want to miss the Plaza. Go in the church, the Terry Theater and shops around the Plaza. Tourist aren't allowed in the City Hall but you can admire the architecture from the sidewalk! The craft shops on the street had some of the best wooden carved cars in Cuba.

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...

This is also known as the Parque Marti and in the centre you will see the "zero kilometre" point which is the centre point of Cienfuegos. 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.
