  • Very nice square framed by magnificent buildings with ornate architecture. This place is calm and quiet in the middle of this small coastal town. The shopping street is nice and busy.

  • The main plaza for Cienfuegos. It's 1 of the better plazas in Cuba. I would highly recommended paying the $1 to go up the cool spiral staircase. You get fantastic views of the surrounding area.
  • Park is ok, area is vert nice
  • Mucho fuego. Muuuchoooooow!
  • Typical Cuban towns, cute square, surrounded by buildings all around. Under the trees people chatting looking for refreshment. The buildings are historic: the theater was headquarters of Castro and Afterward during the battle with government militias. It's worth wandering and talking to people.

  • very nice. They sell a wide variety of old cameras and second-hand books. Also you can enjoy coconut newly cut to combat the heat of Havana.
