Authentic and worth a small detour

A square of authentic old houses and the old hospital. There are stalls selling hand-made ceramic fridge magnets of individual houses. Very quiet but well worth a detour.

Love this place, I went early in the morning, was a little empty. The main attraction was the 1800 Restaurant but was closed. Also we visit a little bar there and the bartender was excellent. Love the fresh pineapple juice. Astrid, Alexa, Vladien

This is one of my favorite squares in the city. A few nice restaurants and cool local scene. Check out the Flaminco restaurant and bar.

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...

A must-see in Camaguey. Within walking distance of many hotels or a cheap pedicab trip. There is an interesting tourist market, but the high point is the many art studios/galleries on and just off the plaza, including those of painter Joel Jover, sculptor Magdiel, the Gato Azul gallery of Ileana Sanchez, and others. Good art, friendly interaction, and no high... More

The church here was one of the few churches that was actually open when I was walking around mid-day which was a nice change of pace. It is a simple church though a little dark for my tastes. Outside of the church is a cobblestoned plaza with cafes, a street market, and many art galleries.

I was in this plaza on a Thursday morning and found a great local tourist market. I don't know what times/days it runs, but its worth it to go there. A number of vendors sell amazing crafts that are handmade. They also have Cuba magnets and license plates. The plaza itself is colorful and quiet.

A little off the beaten path but quaint. We went into several art galleries and found the art creative and innovative and the artists very inviting. Just a short walk from Plaza Agramonte.

The Plaza San Juan de Dios is a very beautiful place to walk and visit art galleries and restaurants. Among places to visit here are Restaurant 1800, gallery of Joel Jover, the Campana de Toledo, Senior Oscar's gallery, the Cathedral, and many market stalls. This is a great place to really get the feel of Cuba.
