Although I didn't so much like the works on paper, the bronze sculptures on the plaza are really lovely. I especially liked the group of three village women with the fourth chair so you can sit down with them and join the conversation.

All the locals kept telling us that the plaza was soooo far from the city center but Camaguey is so small that it's really not as far as you would think it is. Plan to spend an hour at the plaza, maybe more if you decide to eat there. It's a small, slow town so go with the flow.

Due to renovation, the main attraction Museo San Juan de Dios is closed -and the church was too when I visited. The beautiful square looked a bit empty and forlorn...

Perhaps the most interesting and diverse public space in Camaguey. Interesting church, places to eat, home/gallery of artists Joel Jover/Ileana Sanchez, nice statue. It's also a great place to people watch, especially in the late afternoon/early evening. There is also a twice-daily flag raising/lowering ceremony.

You can get a taxi or a horse and buggy ride to Coco Beach. It is the hidden gem of Cuba. A romantic walk along the beach, and a nice lobster lunch is all you need. I will always love Coco Beach because it is desolated, clean and the best place to be. Best to take a horse and buggy ride there.

Coming here with a group of 20 we had a lot of fun. Had a nice meal of
Soup, tomatoes/cucumbers, rice/ beans, pork (very dry), dessert
Afterward we got onto a horse and wagon and were taken around to see calf-roping and other cowboy stuff. Then went to their small village where we went into a home. We were served some appetizers and drinks.
Many fruit trees in the backyard.
An interest place and to learn about their culture.

19th Century Cathedral Built On The Site Of An 18th Century Predecessor, Which Was Destroyed By Fire, And Its 16th Century Predecessor, Which Collapsed.
It was enjoyable in the town of Camaguey. But boring for the average person who doesn't want to know anything about History and the History of Cuba. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes, bring sun screen and sun glasses. No peddlers to worry about. Good food and excellent bands in the bars

Located at Plaza de los Trabajadores, it is Camagüey’s most distinguished church and at one point the largest in Cuba. A parishioner inside the church tried to explain to me its history — a chapel was built here in 1601 and some kind of miraculous figure ascended to heaven from there. The present church was erected in 1748 and later rebuilt twice, once due to a fire. The Holy Sepulchre (Santo Sepulcro) was cast from 25,000 silver coins some 250 years ago. There are a few very old, darken paintings in the church. Under the main altar is a crypt housing a small museum with various old church artifacts uncovered at the church as well as several old collapsed tombs with bones and skulls. There is a cloister adjacent to the church with a lovely garden.

Located at the intersection of Calle Republica and Calle Agramonte, this church, built in 1776, was just 250 meters from our casa particular and it was one of the most prominent building in Camagüey. Ignacio Agramonte was baptized and got married there. However, the church was closed. There was a nice restaurant in the alley behind the church where we had a tasty dinner. Calle Maceo, Camagüey’s main shopping street (closed to vehicular traffic) starts there. At the other corners of this intersection hotel Santa Maria and Islazul Hotel are located. Plenty of bici taxis and regular taxis are waiting just in front of the church. And it is possible to see old streetcar tracks here and there — I wish I could see how streetcars were able to maneuver in the city’s narrow and twisted streets!
