The old train station in Camaguey, built in the first half of the 20th century, is one of the most peculiar in Cuba. Its sober art deco lines give shape to a beautiful architectural complex that is a symbol of the city.
The station is in ruins right now. Here and there, there are signs warning about the risk of certain parts of the building collapsing. The old porch is gone, and the place stopped operating a long time ago.
But in the -let’s hope not too distant- future, it will be turned into a Railway Museum and Theme Park, an ambitious project to be implemented by the Office of the Historian of the city of Camaguey.
One more building with undeniable heritage value that will be added to the cultural attractions of the city.
