Camaguey Centro, Camaguey

(140+ reviews on the web)
Monument Landmark
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.

  • More colonial buildings and churches than Trinidad, very cultured city filled with parks and other landmarks. Food options are limited in the Old Downtown, but moving out from the cobblestone streets ...  more »
  • The city centre has some nice buildings and also lets visitors experience everyday Cuban life.I visited a rash on shop local markets and shops.I enjoyed my visit.  more »
  • 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 »
