Plaza and Church del Carmen, Camagüey, the City of Churches. (1823-1825). And NO, I do not have her phone number!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The baroque Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, build in 1823- 1825, designed by Franciscan José de la Cruz Espí, known as Father Valencia. This site is probably most visited place in Camagüey. Only church in town, with two towers. The pink 1829 Monasterio de las Ursalinas (Ursuline Convent) is next-door, and the plaza is populated with life-size bronze sculptures of local people by artist Martha Jimenez Perez. Two of these guys, I found posing with their own bronze images for us. Resulting tips are their way to make a living.

The two people in my photo are very much alive, one of them is just statuesque.


Restoration of El Carmen church, was done by Arch. Amarilis Echemendía Morffi in 1997- 2003.


Participated in VMC Competition March 2015 'Towers, Bell towers'.
