University of Havana, Havana

(4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Explore the grounds of the grand and storied University of Havana, an educational campus in the downtown area. Climb up the steps to gain good views looking back at the city, and to closer inspect the fine architecture of the campus itself. Admire the neo-classical architecture, built in 1902, and the bronze Alma Mater statue created by artist Mario Korbel in 1919. Established in 1728, the institution was originally tied to the papal authority, but was secularized in 1842. A place of anti-government protest during the Cuban Revolution, the university was closed in 1956 before being reopened when Fidel Castro—an alumnus of the law school—seized power in 1962. With our custom trip planner, Havana attractions like University of Havana can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • De plus de bons restaurants et bars dans le quartier. Vivant et vibrant de jeunes qui aiment les rencontres et discuter. 
  • Bâtiment entretenu (ce qui est rare à La Havane) endroit propre calme et arboré, halte sympa. Le quartier est aussi coloré et agréable. 
  • 大学の階段を上っていくと大きなキューバの旗が風でなびいていた。景色がよく風が通って気持ちいい場所。フィデルカストロも通った大学。
