PLAZA DEL CARMEN

This plaza, in ruins not long ago, has been restored to its original glory – visited by many for its authentic Cuban feeling.

The cobblestone space of Plaza Del Carmen in Camaguey is a tribute to the best of Cuban culture. Giant clay pots or tinajónes, stand alongside colonial-style street lamps, and iconic life-sized sculptures. These pieces by artist Martha Jimenez depict the city’s residents, Camagüeyanos, reading newspapers, and gossiping.

Jimenez’s studio workshop is just off the plaza. We’ll stop by to see her latest creations.
