  • Location of street art. The neighborhood is already worth a visit (but not Havana Vieja). Sunday's spectacle of rumba. A lot of harassment for money for "projects" of culture. It's not true, but it's just like the rest of Havana, say no and FiliuS. Worth the visit.

  • Lots of art. Much history. People are very friendly and love to chat
  • Cool place to admire art. Don forget to say hi to Yari y Manuel. Ache pa mis hermanos
  • Nice artistic place, a guide took us around, tried to explain us what is what, but too fast. At the end wanted us to buy CD for 10 CUC and then disappeared.
  • Folks standing six deep to catch the dancing. Worth going to. Sunday after 12 noon.
  • don't miss Rumba music live every sunday
