WIF: Ecured+ Cuba Travel

Camaguey it is the province with the largest area in Cuba.

Before the current political-administrative division it included the territories of the provinces of Ciego de Avila, part of Sancti Spiritus and Las Tunas.

Also called the “City of the Tinajones” because of the proliferation of these huge clay pots, Camaguey (named after 1903) has a unique urban pattern formed by narrow and tortuous streets that invariably flow into big and small squares and preserved buildings of outstanding historical-cultural and architectural values.

Blessed with beautiful beaches and keys is undoubtedly one of the most attractive tourist sites for those who want to visit the city.

By Granma Cuba: In this landscape, where slender palms grow, alongside intense colors that were never for sale, a human canvas was painted marked by the hopes of those who took up arms and worked hard: men-children with unkempt beards and hair falling onto their rebellious shoulders, young women made powerful by their strong souls and pride.

This is a landscape that gives life, a sublime place where a dream was reborn and became that of millions.

In this landscape, where slender palms grow, alongside intense colors that were never for sale, a human canvas was painted marked by the hopes of those who took up arms and worked hard: men-children with unkempt beards and hair falling onto their rebellious shoulders, young women made powerful by their strong souls and fierce pride.

On this same canvas embroidered are the essential features of almost 60 years of Revolution that continues to think of a future for the forgotten of the earth. Thus Cuba closes a year, and launches another one glorified by 150 years of a nation painted with liberty and justice, celebrating the unity of its people.
