Tinajones are rounded clay earthen pots that were used to transport goods and help solve the area's water shortage by collecting rain. Traditionally they were placed half-buried in the ground so that water would stay cool. People would try to keep up with the quantity and quality of their neighbours' tinajones, eventually also making them a status symbol.
They're an important cultural symbol of Camaguey, and the mysterious legend goes that anyone who drinks water from a tinajone in Camaguey will fall in love with the town and never be able to leave. They can be seen scattered in yards and parks, like in Parque Agramonte.
