  • Behind his corner there is a plaque commemorating Garibaldi, at the Centre of the courtyard is a statue of Christopher Columbus, and facing a stretch of wood rather than paved Causeway to drown out the noise of the hooves of the horses, just like in the past in the Pantheon in Rome. Many references to Italy in the heart of Havana!

  • You can learn a lot about Cuba by visiting this city museum. I encourage visitors to have a knowledgeable guide.

  • 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!
