Explore a star-shaped fort built in the 1500s at Castillo de la Real Fuerza. Part of a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, this fort was originally designed to defend against pirates during a time when Havana was one of the most active commercial ports in the New World. The fort was reopened in 2010 as Cuba’s premiere maritime museum. The museum today displays a large amount of information from the 16th and 17th centuries as well as showcasing highly detailed ship models. Visitors learn about the layouts of various kinds of ships made and used in the harbor.

  • Close to the North, the Plaza de Armas, is the oldest of Havana and remained in good condition. Imposing ramparts and angled, with a moat filled with water around. You can come in for a visit to payment
