Camagüey Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 95 photos
The legendary because this city is known for it's traditional heroism and patriotism.
Camagüey is the biggest Province in Cuba - but also the province with lowest qty of population.It is the province of cattle farms
In the picture : The statue of the hero Agramonte - the Cathedral and one of the four Royal palm trees planted as a memorial of a group nationalists who got killed in 1851. The Palms are symbolic as monuments for the rebels, because the spanish gouvernment never would accept.
In the background :
The Cathedral "Nuestra senora de la Candelaria" Remarkable in this Cathedral is the wooden ceiling
In front the statue replica of "Marianne" - the lady of the french revolution.
France had a big influence in architecture and monuments in Cuba
The local hero in Camagüey and the national banner.
As you can see symbolical wise , Cuba needs a little more help to straighten the flag - so mister president of the US - stop the embargo - Cuba is no longer a strategic island for you.
The russians became aware already decades ago - now it is your turn.Mexican government ! thanks for helping Cuba with food/gas and the basics Cuban locals needs to survive
This is not a political statement - but a human demand !
Central poles and chains to stop vehicles entering the city !
(picture by J@C))
Sometimes we noticed the name HABANA on the poles ?! Question of flexibility between the cities ?
No matter the name - aslong as it fits !
Camagüey was founded in 1514 by Diego Velaquez and was called Puerto Principe till 1903.Camaguez
means "Indian Chief" Camaguebax.
The urbanisation is very special - small streets like a labyrinth and erected in this way to fight against pirates coming from the sea
- Pros:Very nice and clean city
- In a nutshell:Another highlight in Cuba
Marvelous - cuban music till late in the evening Breakfast early morning - nice bar and Pina Colada (the best in Cuba) -... more travel advice
Local people will invite you to have diner or lunch at their private accomodations - just go for it - no danger - just... more travel advice
