Camaguey Centro, Camaguey

#3 of 11 in Historic Sites in Camaguey
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.

  • Let me start by saying that I was there in 2010 to August, very lively town with a beautiful historic centre, some interesting art shops, very hospitable people and party girl.

  • During our whole tour of cuba with the Agency Cuba criolla, we stopped in this quiet town exclusively Cuban (few tourists). Pretty beautiful churches places, notably one or meet in the evening to many city dwellers, our guide allowed us to communicate with them and share exchanges if interressants with this people. It's a good stop on the road to Santiago.

  • one day is barely enough to discover this city otherwise you turn quickly in circles, is not that this city be uninteresting but it offers no particular character and is not at the level of a town like Trinidad or same Sancti spiritus which she offers a more serene atmosphere. See but no more, according to your travel time.
