“Old flavour town square”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Old flavour town square, peaceful and orginally beautiful. Is worth visiting, as is the reconstructed church with two towers. Also not to be missed is the beautiful art by Jimenez

“A special place in Camagüey! It combines religion, art, culture and cuisine!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Plaza del Carmen, is a place to go for several reasons: it has the only church in the city with 2 towers and with a great work of reconstruction, the plaza keeps the flavor of old times with an added value of having there the art gallery of Martha Jimenez, who is also the responsible for the group of sculptures in the plaza representing a group of neighbors .
Also there is the Restaurant El Ovejito where you can have lunch or drink something to refresh yourself. Also at the plaza there is a popular guitar

“Plaza del Carmen-Martha Jimenez gallery and studio”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

If you research the art of Martha Jimenez before you go to Camaguey, you will see it throughout the city. This is an internationally renown artist and visiting the gallery/studio you will understand why. The studio is located in the square across from the life size bronze sculptures, one of which is a replica of a man who at times can be seen sitting in the same square.
