Ciego de Ávila is a modern city, although in the historic center you can find many features of the colonial architecture typical of this type of cities. The Catholic Church, very modern and with an eclectic architecture has at its entrance the statue of San Eugenio de la Palma, patron saint of the city, this Church was completed in 1952. Another jewel of the architecture of the historic center of the city It is the Main Theater, being considered one of the best theaters in Cuba. In the center of the city, the José Martí park is located in which it was completed in 1995, its origins date back to the 1800s where the Alfonso III Square was located in the same place, with a roundabout in the center where the municipal symphony orchestra I played on Sundays. Several buildings dating from the first half of the 20th century are located around the park, and other old buildings are located along the main street of the city. Right in the center of the city there is a modern building, which breaks with all the old colonial architecture, possibly a planning error that was tried to amend a few years ago making an architectural costume that can be evaluated with severity or indulgence but that is a contribution to the aesthetic conservation of city values. Cradle of poets, writers and musicians is now a small city that struggles to preserve its identity while continuously reinventing itself.
