Taina Plaza, Choro de Maitta, Cuba, 2023[open in full screen]  

 
  Previous Parque San Jose, Holguin, Cuba

In the reconstructed village of pre Hispanic aboriginals Aldea Taina in Choro de Maitta we found this very interesting gathering space in the physical center. Village is archaeologically authentic and it is near the largest necropolis excavated in the whole Caribbean.

  You can have a sense that this space is
quite realistic if you have in mind reconstructed 
aboriginal villages all over North America and compared to the Maya City of ek'Balam or Chichen Itza in Mexico that we have an opportunity to visit.
  We previously visited this same village in 2012, and have much better [professional] guide, with much more relevant information about this site. Go back in 2012 for more info.

Of course that Cubans are living in this area today, check this amazing photo in the third row bellow, of two girls returning from school.
