“FILLED WITH LOTS OF LOVE AND ROMANCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I felt like I was in the 18th century and this place was just built!! It had it's own energy that made me do nothing but feel at ease and filled with love. I visited alone for the first time and felt like I had been there with my lover with it's warmth. The architecture is stunning with it's white square and building. It was like a mini version of the Taj Mahal. Jose Marti certainly left the feeling of romance in the air, and I would gladly return with my partner as it is n absolute incredible experience to see in Cienfuegos.

“OK for a walk through”

Central square area has a few historic sites. Sketchy bar along south-side (we had a negative experience.)

“Typical cuban square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

A town square like you'll see everywhere in Cuba. A parc in the middle with a good atmosphere, lots of benches to relax on, and beautifull building all around.

“Lovely Plaza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We came to Cienfuegos as part of a Jewish Mission to Cuba. We visited the home the the president of the Jewish community..saw where the community comes together..no Rabbi, no Shul, no Torah..just a home where people gather for festive holiday meals, prayers, etc. That was a fascinating learning experience..then we visited the Jose Marti Plaza, which of course, has a statue of him. The square was surrounded by a government building, stores, and lots of people. There is also a side street that takes you past all kinds of vendors selling Cuban gifts and souvenirs..A nice treat. I think visiting the town and this square was very enlightening and gives you another view of Cuba..away from Havana..

“Refurbished and beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

A true heart of Cienfuegos, this plaza is the best place for those who crave more open spaces amongst the crammed streets of the town. Everything is pretty and shiny, courtesy of refurbishment since the historical centre of Cienfuegos has become a UNESCO world herritage site. It's a good meeting spot, all bike/horse taxis will most probably drop you off here and you can go to the museum or take a tour of the theatre. Here you'll find the most beautiful buildings of the town.
