In Old Havana's oldest depository, a lively hub of colorful handicrafts, artisan products, and music dwells in Almacenes San Jose. Dating back to 1885, the renovated warehouse now stocks everything from leather craft and ceramics, to toys and tobacco accessories. Take your time to explore the multicolored maze, a cultural hub that also supports local artists using the space for musical performances and art activities. Haggle with the shopkeepers, who don't mind having a friendly debate about the price. Spend time hunting for a bargain and ensure what you’re purchasing is an authentic Cuban piece. Our Havana vacation builder makes visiting Almacenes San Jose and other Havana attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This is the place to buy souvenirs and beautiful Cuban art & paints, found a good cedar humidor for cigars
  • An indoor market for arts and crafts aimed at tourists. Some nice items for sale but not worth going out of your way for unless hunting for gifts.
  • Handicrafts market mainly aimed at tourists. Most of the items for sale are the classic souvenirs (figurines, handbags, hats, percussion, rum, cigars). Perhaps the most interesting and authentic is the one dedicated to the paintings and canvases, among other very beautiful and of various styles and genres (with an eye always on Cuba and its glimpses). Some kiosks where you can eat and drink, and the cadeca to change money.
