Camaguey, previously named Santa Maria del Puerto Principe, was founded on the bay of Nuevitas in 1514. It was one of the 6 original cities founded in Cuba. The city moved to the interior to escape revolts from the Indians as well as pirate attacks, most notably by Sir Henry Morgan. The irregular, intricate design of the town with its network of streets makes Camaguey different from other Cuban cities. It was designed so to protect itself from raids. There is a large, rich Colonial-style historic centre, the result of 19th century planning, and the city has an active culture life.
