  • Its was educational, beautiful antique cars, unique artist, great music and very nice people
  • Gorgeous! Ask your taxi driver to drive you around the park even if you are just driving through Cienfuegos. It's worth the detour!
  • Nice square in the town with a theatre on one side (it was being refurbished when we visited).
  • Great location with loads of history. Worth a visit just to experience the atmosphere. Markets close by and bars / coffee shops.
  • This place is a lot like other squares in Cuba, but the architecture is great to see.
