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.

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
