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.

  • Sunday morning in Camagüey: hardly any tourists, well filled churches in this clean city of water jars, the shops open and the construction work in some areas of the old city are in full swing. The partly still existing tram tracks running through the city are good orientation. On Sunday the cars with the indicator B on Cuba may not drive, i.e. less traffic through the missing state vehicles (except buses). In the Templo Bautista, we experience a beautiful fair with big band and singers.

  • It is a city maze, with a ragancanvas of streets, squares and alleys which are lost between sinuous, lined with baroque churches. To visit the "Casa de Trova," club where they performed poets, artists and storytellers.

  • A unesco world heritage site, is well worth a visit. Beautiful colonial architecture. Pleasant pedestrian part. A Cuba.
