The city of Ciego de Ávila is a modern city, but in the historical district can find many features of the typical colonial architecture of such cities. The principal, very modern and eclectic architecture church has at its entrance a statue of San Eugenio de la Palma, patron saint of the city, this church was completed in 1952.
Another architectural gem from the historic city center is the Teatro Principal, considered one of the best theaters in Cuba. In the city center, the José Martí Park which was completed in 1995 is located, its origins date back to 1800 where in the same place the Plaza Alfonso III was located, with a gazebo in the center where the municipal symphony orchestra played on Sundays.
About this park several buildings dating from the first half of the twentieth century, and along the main street of the city other old buildings are located also located. Just in the middle of a modern city, which breaks all the old colonial architecture, considered a planning error is raised.
Ciego de Ávila is one of the most promising tourist destinations in Cuba with the construction of a causeway linking the mainland with Coco and Cayo Guillermo, integrated with Paredón Large and Anton Chico, among others, in the Jardines del Rey archipelago .
