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 art pieces by Martha Jimenez depict the city’s residents, camagüeyanos, reading newspapers, and gossiping – Cuba’s unofficial national pastime.
