  • The experience when visiting the Callejon de Hammel on a Sunday is much more sensitive than contemplative. The climate is hot and sometimes heavy and the approach to the tourists is also excessive. But for those who were already used to it, I really enjoyed it. Especially the weather and to see the Cuban citizen acting out in a party of religious syncretism. Unique experience!
