Camaguey Centro, Camaguey

(4.3/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Is an intricate tangle of narrow streets with colourful houses and tidy, which often emerge into delicious squares. The Council also ride a little before sunset, the golden light adds charm to something already beautiful.

  • Unlike most Cuban cities, Camagüey's old town is not laid on a grid which makes it interesting to explore. Lots of perspectives, quaint squares, Baroque churches and old buildings. Less touristy too!  more »
  • Lots to see and do here,lots of choice for food and drink. Plazas large and small to explore or find a shady spot from the sun.Give more time to this town it will grow on you.  more »
