Old Havana, Havana, Cuba
Wander around Havana ViejaHabana Vieja (Old Havana) was founded in 1519 by the Spanish and is located within the extent of the former city walls.
It was built in the baroque and neoclassic styles and was declared a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1987.
Wandering around the streets of Havana Vieja, you will know you that you’re in Cuba and nowhere else in the world. Restaurants playing Cuban music, people dancing salsa on the streets, ladies dressed colorfully, buildings falling apart, people shouting out in Spanish… there are always something going on in Old Havana.
It’s my favorite part of the Havana, and some enthralling places to visit are: calle Obispo (at the end of this street there are restaurants with live music and people dancing on the street), Plaza de la Catedral and Catedral de San Cristobal, Plaza Vieja, Cámara Oscura, the Museum of Revolution, Plaza de Armas, Hotel Ambos os Mundos (to have a piña colada at the rooftop), San Franscico de la Habana Basilica and El Malecón.
