Plaza de Armas, Havana
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Enjoy the historic and peaceful Plaza de Armas, and walk upon its unusual wooden-brick pavings, originally put in place to prevent the sounds of horses' hooves as they walked through the square. A great place to pick up souvenirs and knick knacks (there is a daily second-hand book market every day except Sundays), the square also serves as a picturesque setting to simply take in the sights. Take a seat and watch life go by in the square, lined with palm trees and showcasing amazing architecture. You can als pop into plenty of restaurants and bars in the surrounding area for refreshments. Add Plaza de Armas and other attractions to your Havana trip itinerary using our Havana trip builder.

Santa Isabelのすぐ目の前にあるアルマス広場には古本やチェ・ゲバラに関する本などがたくさん売られている。散歩している人やのんびり公園で過ごしている人たちも多くいて和やかな雰囲気。Many books about books and Che Guevara, was sold in Plaza de Armas in front of Santa Isabel. Were a lot of people who are walking or relaxing in the Park people and peaceful atmosphere.show original

La Plaza de Armas es la principal (junto a la Plaza de la Catedral) de La Habana Vieja. En las calles que rodean el parque se sitúan un gran número de vendedores, principalmente ofertan libros y objetos antiguos. A un costado de la plaza se encuentra el Palacio de los Capitanes Generales, antigua sede del gobierno de Cuba en la época colonial.
A leafy square with a old book market. You can find old revolution book, music disc, old coins and money, poster. It is a good place for antique lovers!
great historic plaza. must see
Fun Cuban paraphernalia and literature for relatively cheap. Except Canada pins - $3 CUCs! I suggest bringing your own ;)
I like the park right outside my hotel (which was a convent)
