  • We had a young guide talk us through the rooms of old memorabilia. The building itself is beautiful and a nice respite from the humidity. The flag room is interesting too. 
  • Visit this small Museum of the history of Cuba. The Museum staff is very nice and does not hesitate to take your picture.

  • Incredible restoration of the former Casino Espanol. Wonderful acoustics, too.
  • Some sort of office where they perform civil weddings. Great place to sit across on Prado Boulevard and see the beautiful cars with happy couples on their way to marriage!
  • The best squash player from cuba
