More than three years of intense work led by the Office of the Historian of the City of Camagüey, allowed rescuing an emblematic space in one of the first regions of the country where railroads were introduced in the mid-19th century.

The building is located on the premises of the Historic Center, a World Heritage Site, and a few meters away from the Plaza Hotel, the oldest hotel in operation in the city, which was visited by Nobel Literature Prize winner Gabriela Mistral.

At a ceremony held at the Atares Castle in Havana, on the World Day for Monuments and Sites, OHCC Director Jose Rodriguez talked about the crucial importance of preserving spaces of these kinds, which are material representatives of the most valuable aspects of culture.

Now, in one of the most visited areas by tourists, visitors will be able to enjoy a complex where locomotives from the 19th and 20th centuries are exhibited outside, in addition to a place that reviews the railroad trips in the former Villa de Santa Maria.
