Arbour of Manzanillo. The Moorish Square of the park Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, of Manzanillo, it was inaugurated June 24, 1924 and has become a cultural symbol of the city, for its exceptional singularity among all the constructions of that type in the country.
Of a great architectural richness, it was built taking like model the existent one in the Patio de los Leones , of the Alhambra of Granada, in Spain, built during the splendour of the Arab dominance on the Iberian Peninsula.
As it corresponds to the Mudejar architecture, this jewel of the City of the Guacanayabo Gulf has among its components thin columns that sustain a pompous dome covered with glazed slabs, disposed in a helical way, looking like imbricate flakes.
It also uses lobulate arches, baseboards of mosaics and works in low relieve, floor and marble steps and circular grill of wrought iron, while the property is very defined by two semicircular stonemasons and the access to the interior it is controlled by grills doors to the front and bottom.
The arbour was carried out to be headquarters of the Municipal Band of Concerts.
