Camaguey Centro, Camaguey
(4.2/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Originally founded on the north coast of Cuba in 1515 and then moving inland in 1528 due to continuous pirate attacks, Camaguey Centro now exists as the country's second largest historic center. Resembling a maze, the city has 15 churches and offers winding alleys and forked streets that lead to squares. According to legend the city was designed this way as a defensive measure. Locals dispute this claim and say that the design is the result of a lack of planning. Tour the city and appreciate the colonial architecture, head to a plethora of restaurants and try some local cuisine, or people watch as you rest in one the city's squares. Arrange to visit Camaguey Centro and other attractions in Camaguey using our Camaguey family vacation planner.

  • You won't have more than 2 blocks without finding a church in Camagüey. He helmet historical is beautiful, the buildings are very beautiful and the streets narrow and never completely straight and with sidewalks in some sections too narrow. When arrive to the part pedestrian, them 2 streets are completely themed and the local commercial with names of movies

  • To be a city little visited by foreign tourists, Camaguey tour offers different routes and attractions to visit. in one day you visit all. City crammed with art galleries, more or less known; from Gallery reviewed on Lonely Planet to the garage used as a laboratory/view from DIY artist. City not to be missed!

  • It is a colonial city full of charm but, unlike Trinidad, not so crowded. In addition, the House where we stayed, Andres, was best in terms of treatment and foster care, what made the experience even more delightful. The room we had to short.
