It is these patios is possible still to observe great mud containers, to usanza Andalusian, to store the rainwater. This is unique in this province of Cuba. The same it is known them like tinajones. For that reason also a is called to him this city: the City of the Tinajones. To walk by the historical center is an unforgettable experience, because due to its typical city-planning structure the vision includes great space and is possible to admire different city-planning spaces, many of which include some church or convent.
In order to begin to walk, then, we recommended, that is to say, to begin by the Greater Place the old Place of Arms and today also call Park Ignacio Agramonte. In the city there are five main places, and this one is one of them. From here, and arranged in the 4 points cardinal, it is possible to be arrived with facility at the other four places: The Favor, San Francisco, San Juan de God and the Carmen, in each one of as there is a church. The two last places conserve their original colonial atmosphere: first it is the most characteristic place and it has the more representative city-planning set of the past, whereas in the second his church it has two towers, something very little frequents inside Cuba. The places are very recommendable to design an itinerary to visit city, because in them it is common to find inhabitants and visitors resting, eeting again themselves with friendly or taking a walk by the streets. These last ones serve as communication between the places, where to sections they appear the parks, the unique spaces of green areas within the city, except for the call Rustic Casino, the unique great green area of the city. If it wishes to enjoy the tranquillity to rest or to read in an atmosphere of verdure and privacy, we recommended to look for one to him of houses of rent within this area, because in the inner patios the vegetation abounds.
