Ciego de Avila things to do

Ciego de Avila

The city of Ciego de Avila is 460km east of Havana and 110km west of Camaguey, has developed as something of an historical intermediate stopover point for travelers. Many travelers is the city as an overnight resting place before continuing on to the cities of Trinidad and Santo Domingo in the 19th century.

An interesting place to visit is Parque Marti and just a few blocks from there it is the Teatro Principal, a 500-seater theatre which has recently been totally restored. This was built by a rich socialite, Angela Hernandez Viuda de Jimenez, who battled to create a cultural Mecca in her home town of Ciego de Avila.

The Museo Provincial on Calle Jose Antonio Eschevarria is well worth a visit if you are interested in the area’s role in the struggle to overthrow Batista. The Centro Provincial de Arte building on Calle Independencia may appeal to those looking for the peculiarities of provincial artwork. The Casa de la Trova on Libertad No 130 can occasionally deliver a guttural night out and overall noisy fun.

Traffic in the town is almost all horse-drawn buggies, and the longest possible journey should only cost a few pesos. The town is built on a strict grid system centered on Parque Marti but there are few buildings of note, the most popular meeting place on the square is the Casa de Agua (Water House), which serves free glasses of the local mineral water, as well as homemade refrescos (soft drinks), fruit juices and the Cuban favorite of Malta with condensed milk.
