Plaza de Armas, Havana

(4.4/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • オビスポ通の東端、フエルサ要塞や旧総督官邸、国立自然史博物館などに囲まれた小さな公園。 公園周囲には古本市がたち、ゲバラのポスターなど、土産物にできそうなものも並びます。ぶらぶら見て回るのもおもしろい。

  • 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)
  • Meh, not much to see.
