Discover Cuban culture, history, and life together in one attraction when you visit Cespedes Park. Start on one end of the plaza at the municipal building, the site of Fidel Castro's famous speech that declared the victory of the revolution. Then make your way through the crowds of locals and tourists--you'll find them conversing with others, performing dances and music, peddling their wares, and touring the sights. The park is surrounded by buildings of cultural significance, including a cathedral.

Best square in Santiago de Cuba, also best WiFi signal we found in the whole of Cuba and we could actually download some podcasts on the signal.

Incredible place to walk and explore full of cuban people with lot of Cuban Guaguanco, and also there is so many coffe shops and the famous Bodeguita del Medio near by this park!!👌🏼
