Iglesia Santa Ana, Camagüey, the City of Churches. (1820-1847)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The church of Santa Ana, was a good orientation point for us in Camagüey, as we stayed near Calle General Max Gomez. The shrine was on this spot already in 1697!, but the church was build in stages from 1820-1847, with the help of Don Miguel Iriarte, a rich landowner. It is the oldest temple among all religious temples in the city and has a ceiling of very beautiful Moorish influence, considered a work of art. Major renovation were done in 1935, by architect Claudio Muns Blanchart and last time the church was renovated was in 1996, after a fire.

It look a bit neglected now, but I detected some construction activity in the neighbourhood.
