Plaza de la Vigía

Plaza de la Vigía Review

The marble statue of an independence fighter known as El Soldado Desconocido (The Unknown Soldier) sits at the center of the Plaza de la Vigia, just south of the intersection of Calle 272 and Calle 83.

On the plaza, the Teatro Sauto is one of Cuba's finest and best-preserved neoclassical structures. Also known as the Teatro Antillano, or Theater of the Antilles, it was built in 1863 at the peak of the city's prosperity. Tours of the triple-tier interior, with its carved wood and frescoes, are available. Plaza de la Vigia, Matanzas, Matanzas Province. 45/24-2721. 2 cuc for tours. Tours daily on demand, performances usually begin at 8:30 pm.
