Parque Calixto Garcia, Holguin, Cuba, 2023[open in full screen]  

 
 

Previous Plaza, La Palma, Rafael Freyre, Cuba

This is our third visit to this square in Holguin, capital of the province of the same name. As you can see on the map bellow it is not called city of squares. Along two main Streets in the city there are are 6 squares. #01 Los Cabalitos, #02 Parque Infantil, #03 Parque San Jose, #04 Parque Calixto García [this one], #05 Parque Peralto [San Isidoro] and #06 Parque Jose Marti.

  On the page from this square from 2012 we have very interesting view of all of the squares, high above the city from the hill Loma de la Cruz.

It is highly recommended to take a look.

Notice that they are all placed in the straight line between Calle de Maceo and Bulevard Libertad.

Much more info about the Parque itself find on 2012 and 2019 visits.

  This time we had very short time here, just waiting for our tour bus to arrive. Still we have to remind you that Statue of Major General Calixto Garcia is still taking prominent place in the middle of the square. Statue dedicated to "all the mothers" of the Holguin, by Mario Santi, also deserves our attention.
