Havana was founded in 1519 by the Spanish. By the 17th century, it had become one of the Caribbean’s main centres for ship-building. Although it is today a UNESCO word heritage and a sprawling metropolis of 2 million inhabitants, its old centre retains an interesting mix of Baroque and neoclassical monuments, and a homogeneous ensemble of private houses with arcades, balconies, wrought-iron gates and internal courtyards.
“My mojito in the Bodeguita del Medio and my daiquiri in the Floridita” Ernest Hemingway
Contemporary Havana can essentially be described as three cities in one: Old Havana, Vedado, and the newer suburban districts. Old Havana, with its narrow streets and overhanging balconies, is the traditional centre of much of Havana’s commerce, industry, and entertainment as well as being a residential area. It is richly endowed with historic buildings, representing architectural styles from the 16th through the 19th century. Covering some three square miles and hugging the harbour, Old Havana includes Spanish colonial structures, towering Baroque churches, and buildings in Neoclassic style, as well as commercial property and less pretentious homes on the fringes..

Havana’s popular places
Bodeguita del Medio
A very popular restaurant nestling close to Havana’s famous cathedral, this characterful location is bursting with atmosphere and specialises in traditional Cuban dishes, notably its roast pork, black beans and fried plantains. Reservations in advance strongly advised.
The Malecon represents a particular and indispensable space to the life of the city, where relevant developments of our culture and history take place, this becoming in a unique symbol of our capital.
Museum of the Revolution
This museum is housed in the former Presidential Palace and commemorates Cuba’s historic heritage. It includes the Granma Memorial, the boat used by Castro and his followers in 1956 to travel from Mexico to Cuba to begin the struggle against the then dictator Fulgencio Batista.
The Christ of Havana
Statue of white marble from Carrara shows Christ blessing the city. With a height of 15 meters, it is placed on a 3 meter pedestal. Keeping in mind the elevation of the hill in which is located it reaches 79 meters above sea level. It is the largest outdoors statue of Carrara marble that a woman has ever made. It has been in his place since 1958.
The Capitol, one of the most splendid buildings of the capital in which the Statue of the Republic was placed, third highest of the world in indoor space; close to its feet a diamond was planted to mark the kilometer 0 of the Carretera Central (Central Road).
Cathedral of Havana
It is the greatest example of the so called “Cuban baroque style”. Its construction started in 1748 and was stopped in 1767. Short time later, it was agreed to continue building it to transfer the Main Parish to such place. The construction finished in 1777, and it was given the rank of Cathedral in 1787. For over 100 years from 1796 to 1898 the body of Christopher Columbus lay in a mausoleum here.
San Francisco de Asis Square
This was the most important place in the life of the city and docks. In the XVIII century, the new Covent of Saint Francis of Assisi was finished, which at the time had the tallest church tower in the city. In the XX century, the construction of La Lonja de Comercio was finished to rule the development of the commercial operations that were taking place in the area. At the center of the square we can find a The Fountain of the Lions.
