Attractions in Camagüey

Church Nuestra Señora de la Soledad

Erected in the fourth decade of the XVIII century, its tall tower has become an urban landmark for Camagüey denizens and a point of reference for their identity.

Within La Soledad predominate XX century icons crafted from wood and covered with plaster. Some of them are unique in Camagüey because of the saint they represent such as Saint Lucía, Saint Hilarión, Saint Luis Gonzaga, Saint María Goretti, Saint Clara, and Saint Augustine. Other images correspond to the Virgin de la Caridad del Cobre, St. Francis of Assisi and St. Anthony of Padua.

Below the presbytery lies an old cemetery consisting of crypts bearing inscriptions relating to the burials.

This church and that of La Merced are the most ancient edifices in the City of Camagüey to have conserved almost all their formal and structural integrity.

Address: República street (Reina) corner to Ignacio Agramonte (Estrada Palma)
