At the commemoration for the 471 years of the foundation of the Hato de San Isidoro de Holguin, the emblematic Plaza de la Marqueta reopened after being almost completely reconstructed.

Holguin's Plaza de la Marqueta resulted from an imported idea from a premise nearby the port of Havana, which also accommodated a fair.

The investment, that was mainly afforded by the local Patrimony Office, was named Complejo Cultural-Comercial Plaza de la Marqueta (Plaza de la Marqueta Cultural-Commercial Complex).

People can browse and buy craft pieces and many other ones from different artistic expressions at the 39 stands opened there.

But La Marqueta, as people call it, also offers other cultural and gastronomic services.
