History remains a palpable part of daily life at Old Havana, the World Heritage-listed downtown of Cuba's capital. Founded by the Spanish in the 16th century, this historical neighborhood long served as the hub of commerce and a resting point for marauders transporting New World treasures back to Europe. The narrow streets of the central district contain numerous examples of Baroque and Neoclassical architecture, as well as a charming ensemble of private homes complete with neatly decorated balconies and lush internal gardens. The starting point of many tours, this area contains Havana's main square and a 16th-century fortress guarding the entrance into the city's picturesque harbor.

  • Take a ride in a classic convertible for a view of classic Havana a must do!! There is so much to see and do and you will not know where to look. If visiting Cuba you have to visit Havana. 
  • Tiring day... exhausting heat. We did travel in the carriage and then by taxi. The annoying thing is that all you offer and malked are calling for more tip. Fair san jose is cinsiguen crafts more cheap. Mission accomplished knew.. .no location
