Paseo del Prado, Havana

4.5
#14 of 78 in Sightseeing in Havana
Landmark Tourist Spot
Stroll down Paseo del Prado, one of Havana's main avenues. Constructed in the 1770s, the boulevard was designed by French landscape architect Jean-Claude Nicolas Forestier. Take a walk along the tree-lined avenue to see notable city buildings, including the vibrant Hotel Sevilla. European-style mansions fringe the boulevard, reminiscent of Barcelona's La Rambla. Relax on one of the marble benches to cool off and rest, take in the lively atmosphere, and people watch.

  • Share this public space with the locals and watch Havana go by. Saw a wedding party, heard live music.  more »
  • This was a nice area to walk around, look at some artwork, take a few pictures, etc. Not much to do, but a great deal to see.  more »
  • Very nice "paseo" offering to sit and walk in a shade during the hot hours of the day. It spreads from Parque Central to the sea.  more »

  • I was told to be careful on the Prado because of crime, but I didn't see a single sign of that. I saw kids walking with their parents kicking soccer balls as they walked. There were people strolling at dusk. You could watch all of the old cars go by and hear the music coming from the open windows of the houses along the street. I loved it and could have sat there for hours.
  • Good place , promenade with its old town spirit .
  • PRADO-Central walking area of Havana; place clusters of many historical sights of Cuba. Boulevard has existed since the end of the 18th century, as a continuation of Paseo de Martí. The way it looks today, it was designed by Frenchman Forestier in the first half of the 20th century. It is believed that the Paseo del Prado, as it is affectionately known, Cubans themselves, is one of the 1000 most popular spots of the world.

  • Next to the beach promenade of Malecon, the Peseo is probably the other major thoroughfare, this runs crosswise through Havana. Here you will find many central buildings, the children play football and find small shops on the benches at the edge instead. Flair, has should be work on themselves, if you have a walk long time.

  • Very nice promenade in the Centre of Havana, to reach the coast and take the Boardwalk, we recommend to do it in the morning, is more pleasant and not so many people.
