Very similar to many of the churches and cathedrals in the country. obviously important to worshippers, but not a lot to tourists on a casual visit.

Nice little church. For a few pesos you can go up the tower, see the bells, and admire the view! On the other side of the square is the El Cambio bar favoured by Hunter S Thompson.

Although not the grandest church we have been in it still has a lot of atmosphere. Maybe it reflects Camaguey not too showy.

This cathedral was built to commemorate the rebellion against the Spanish. It is calm and peaceful inside, but fairly plain. There is a sense of reverence to the Virgin, and a feel of the Santeria religion due to the presence of masks used to worship...More

It has historical fact about this cathedral. The tower is falling apart and they are looking to renovate it. Need financial help. So calm and peaceful inside.

In the historic Plaza Ignacio Agramonte which commemorates the rebellion against the Spanish and the four heroes who were killed. The church is well kept, but the main attraction is the tower (admission 1 CUC). From the top there is a great view of the...More

It was enjoyable in the town of Camaguey. But boring for the average person who doesn't want to know anything about History and the History of Cuba. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes, bring sun screen and sun glasses. No peddlers to worry about....More
