  • If you have a little time left. However, be made the declarations only Spanish or English. The projectionist has extra put a group together for us. Otherwise were only Spanish speaking visitors. For that we had to wait a little, but in the meantime you could from the roof overlooking the old town and the harbour can enjoy. So not really was a loss. I had some concerns with regard to the elevator. I read here that the lecture was sometimes unkind. I cannot confirm that. Depends probably when there is and whether just one American Crusaders in the port. Americans don't really like the Cubans.

  • You tell me 10 minutes or so while showing a Havana City in the Camera Obscura (Spain and English). Landscape, hear him speak on camera, surprising and interesting. Also overlooking the city from the roof a bit but because its views are good. 2 CUC entrance fee, good to go. It is also historically valuable.
