  • Nice square with its houses of colors, your church, your good restaurant, their craft stalls and even the memory of their former pastor, who revere and want to make Holy. It is a charming place that worth a visit to get to know one of the typical places of the city of Camagüey

  • We arrived to the square at dusk and we had a vision striking between the Church and the houses surrounding it. The colonial buildings tell the past history and present time remains as suspended.
