Camagüey is the easternmost province of the center of Cuba, and is the largest in area. It is composed of a central area or historic center, where you can see ancient buildings with their narrow alleys and cobblestone colonial style, and has beautiful squares and churches of great historical value.
Due to the care and commitment of its inhabitants and local authorities, part of its historic center was declared a World Heritage Site. Since the times of Spanish colonization “tinajones” began being used. These are nothing more than huge containers in the shape of a balloon and made of clay to store rainwater for long periods. For this reason and because these vessels can now be found decorating streets and parks, Camagüey is called “la ciudad de los tinajones” (the city of the tinajones), and there is a legend that says if you drink water from a tinajón you will stay to live in Camagüey or at least you always return to it . Their carnivals are called "San Juan Camagueyano", because they are celebrated around June 24th, the day of San Juan.
On the occasion of this day a broth is made on each neighborhood called ajíaco, of an exquisite and peculiar flavor that includes meats of all kinds, salted ribs and a “sofrito” (sautéed ingredients). Another of the dishes or typical recipes of Camagüey is the “Mata Jíbaro”, which is made from pork rinds together with ripe bananas and peppers and garlic. The rice with beef and ripe banana is a meal that stands out in the territory. Camagüey is also famous for the preparation of the best Cuban cheeses.
Another important tradition is the procession of the Holy Sepulcher. The procession takes place every Holy Friday and consists of taking the Holy Sepulcher from Camagüey to the Metropolitan Cathedral, escorted by the archbishop, priests, religious men and women, seminarians and the people who follow it singing religious songs.
