Looked at by the Cubans at the same level as Socrates, the plaza dedicated to Jose Martinez is remarkable and full of knowledge and sightseeing.

A good place to take pictures when exploring the city. This park is very close to the La Union Hotel.

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.

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.

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.
