A nice place to sit and watch the world go by. Holguin is called the "city of parks" and this is one of the nicest. Fully revamped and fixed up in the winter of 2016-17.

Clean park where people use wifi, sit and visit, meet friends. Can feel the colonial influence here more. Parts of the sidewalks were under construction in March 2017.

In this area, meet friends, lovers. Always about the music somewhere. Very good feel to it. You can sit for hours and look around.

Very busy area with lots of people accessing the internet, chatting or taking a break. Most of the interesting buildings are around the square or not far away. Very similar to many city squares in Cuba, certainly not the best.

Being refurbished when we visited but an interesting mix of architecture surrounding the square and a chance to see the somewhat random nature of Cuban retailing. Good for people-watching and car-spotting.
