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.

What a wonderful plaza. This is real Cuba, the architecture, the atmosphere, the people. It put you in the mood. I would have liked to have more time to explore this attractive City. I recommend a visit to Cienfuegos & plaza Jose Marti

Great plaza, lovely buildings on all sides. In the evenings often people outside. Avoid the church it is a big safety and construction risk i got bitteb by a flee in there. I really hope they renovate it soon.

It's just a plaza, so I wouldn't traverse Cuba just to get here; but it is surrounded by some very elegant buildings, including the Teatro Terry. The plaza itself is spacious with a few places to catch some shade. The central statue to national hero Jose Marti is epic, and the right camera angle makes it look like he is... More

Around the plaza you can find some nicely restaured buildings like teatro thomas. Besides that it a nice place to watch some tourists like yourself wander by. And like on every street and plaza there will always be some wonderful vehicles to be photographed

The Plaza Jose Marti is surrounded by historical points of interest, museums, and art as well as a place to have a drink. It is a nice square to take a walk and relax. On the June afternoon I visited the square, I was lucky to witness a graduation ceremony for the military school. It was lovely seeing the pride... More
