A very beautiful and historical place where legend has it that Hatuey, war chief of the united Taíno and Ciboney Native resistance to the Spanish was burned at the stake. Much later the city's most renown patriot, Ignacio Agramonte was propped up against a wall and shot after dying from his battle wounds. It is a large, cobbled square bounded... 更多
