City (pop., 2006 est.: 301,574), capital of Camagüey province, Cuba. It was founded at the site of the present-day port of Nuevitas and was moved inland in 1528. Because of the province's great production of livestock and agricultural products, it is now Cuba's largest interior city and an important communications, trading, and industrial centre.
