Martí Park, Cienfuegos
In the year of 1906 it was named for the National Hero after a central ensemble of sculptures was built in it, from an idea by the Italian artist Giovanni Nocolini. Fourteen years later the pedestal was built for the statue that symbolises the Republic. Since 1865 the area was enhanced by the presence of two lions sculpted in marble. The Arch of the Workers (Arco de los Obreros) is also from this time period; the workers of the Masons’ Guild raised it. With pride the people of Cienfuegos also exhibit the summerhouse and the busts that decorate the surroundings of this well cared for park, that has become an attraction due to its location and also because it is a National Monument.
