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.

  • The fair of crafts of San José, is located in Havana Bay and is a great Cuban crafts market. It has large halls and breathe sea, also is there a place to eat or drink something cool. It is the ideal place to buy souvenirs or memories. You can buy any crafts that you imagine, always in CUC. On your tour you'll find paintings and reproductions of Cuban landscapes, places and famous people; historical and contemporary photographs; sculptures in wood; garments and embroideries; Goldsmith; ornaments and jewelry with seeds and snails; Afro articles; craftsmanship with leather; typical Cuban hats. It is a good choice to make a shopping trip.
