In this wonderful avenue known by Cubans as Calle G, the great monument to José Miguel Gómez, the second president of Cuba, can be found; and another one dedicated to Tomás Estrada Palma, his predecessor, who was considered a puppet of the US, however the only trace left of this statue is a couple of shoes on a pedestal.

To the north of Calle G is the Monument to Calixto García, a sculpture in honor of the brave Cuban general who US military leaders prevented from attending the Spanish surrender in 1898, in Santiago de Cuba. The statue represents the general riding a horse, and is surrounded by 24 bronze sheets telling the story of Calixto’s fight for the Independence of Cuba.

On the ocean-facing side of this avenue the Casa de las Américas (House of the Americas) is located, an interesting cultural center housing an art gallery and a bookshop.

This place is quite lively during the evenings, when youngsters visit it looking to enjoy themselves with its guitars and drums. This atmosphere is especially present on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
