I love this little square - it's just a little neighbourhood with kids playing around the place, scabbing money for icecream from visitors, all amongst the cobble stones and beautiful bronze statues which simply depict Cubans going about their business. ONe of the really lovely...More

This small plaza was apparently restored a few years ago. Now the highlight for me was the several lifestyle bronze sculptures of people sitting around doing normal activities. The sculptress was Marta Jimenez, whose studio is just off the plaza and well worth the visit.

This is a beautiful plaza with very nice sculptures. The area is clean and colorful. Be sure to walk around to see the statues.

Plaza del Carmen offers everything a tourist can wish for: a beautiful Baroque church surrounded by well-kept houses, no cars (pedestrian area), few tourists, good public art, a great art gallery and a couple of restaurants -my favourite being El Ovejito, excellent and moderately priced

All the locals kept telling us that the plaza was soooo far from the city center but Camaguey is so small that it's really not as far as you would think it is. Plan to spend an hour at the plaza, maybe more if you...More

This was by far my favorite place in Camaguey. I loved the cobblestone streets, the pinkish colored church, shopping for handmade souvenirs and art, and enjoying a bite to eat at the nearby cafes. I also thoroughly enjoyed visiting with an old man who told...More
