Central Havana, Havana
Categories: Neighborhoods, Tourist Spots
Central Havana represents the older part of the city, rich in culture and representing the working class. The decayed urban landscape of this area is made up of crumbling buildings, broken sewage systems, and potholed roads, but it is a unique culture all its own. Walk through the crowds amidst the shouts of street vendors, pick up the banter of groups of school kids, and experience music blaring through speakers. Afro-Cuban culture comes to life with the artwork and mural of the Callejon de Hamel temple, while a street rumba performance happens nearby. Try Chinese food at one of the many restaurants representing the local Chinese community. Because this is an urban area, be alert for potential pickpocketers.
