This is a wonderful church. If you can find the church director he will give you a brief tour of the grounds and the catacombs under the alter (for a donation). There are really neat relics including bones in a tomb. The grounds have lots of fruit trees and flowers. It's a great experience.

Located at Plaza de Los Trabajadores this church is Camaguey's most impressive church. It is extremely beautiful but simple. Located inside the church are many wonderful statues and carvings. The outside architecture of this church is also amazing. It is a perfect example of a Cuban church.

Camaguey is worth visting for its art and culture as well as its many churches. I think it is called the "city of churches."

When going through the centre of Camagüey, take a few minutes to look inside this church. Not too ostentateous, some imposing statues and carvings.

Located at Plaza de los Trabajadores, it is Camagüey’s most distinguished church and at one point the largest in Cuba. A parishioner inside the church tried to explain to me its history — a chapel was built here in 1601 and some kind of miraculous figure ascended to heaven from there.

If you are in Camaguey .Imposing well restored building in a pretty plaza .You enter the church through a garden .The main feature is the silver altar covered in silver coins which is very effective .
