Plaza del Carmen, Camaguey

(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Head to Plaza del Carmen, one of Camaguey’s most picturesque plazas, featuring cobblestoned streets, life-sized sculptures, and an early 19th-century church. The marble sculptures depict locals going about their everyday lives; find a man reading the newspaper, women gossiping, and a couple in love. According to local legend, the real-life man on whom the newspaper sculpture was based regularly visits the sculpture, to sit next to his likeness and read the newspaper. Look for the church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which was built in 1825. Put Plaza del Carmen and other Camaguey attractions into our Camaguey vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The Plaza del Carmen is worth with his Church, as well as the existing bronze figures such as the blasphemous women, the loving couple and the man with the water pitchers (landmark of Camaguey) a trip. There are also a restaurant and the Galeria Martha Jimenez, which you can watch on demand. To do so, the place has been pleasantly empty and well prepared.

  • One of the sites that is can not miss if you truly know the old and eternal Camagüey.

  • The Plaza del Carmen was beautifully prepared: new patch and several bronze figures invite you to linger. The Church is one of the few on Cuba with two steeples.
