Among buildings of particular interest are the Government Palace (City Hall), San Lorenzo School, the Bishopric, the Ferrer Palace, the former lyceum, and some residential houses.

The centre of the city is one of the most well.preserved around the country, with beautiful, colorful historical buildings surrounding not only the parque central but also all along the Malecon and the tiny streets. The beautiful french architecture with big windows and contrasting colours spouses perfectly the well preserved paseo, with lots of lively restaurants and bars. The historical centre is perfect for people watching, you will often hear live music and will be able to find a couple of markets, too.

This is one of the most original historical towns in all of Cuba. With it’s French architecture, cute cobblestone streets and a few excellent outdoor markets it's a good place to spend a few days. While it is tricky to find handicrafts and decent souvenirs in Cuba, I found Cienfuegos to have some of the best options in the old town.
