Things to do - general

Cuba, a former village of San Cristobal de La Habana, was also known as the Fortress City of Key West Indies and New World up to the present time with its historic center a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. ,

The heart of the old city is in the so-called Plaza de Armas, whose location is linked to the tradition of the first council meeting held on November 16 under a leafy ceiba, near the coast, ceremony came to this day. ,

His system of fortresses, iconic Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro, spanned nine large buildings to form -a say the experts the most remarkable set of its kind in Spanish America. ,

About 140 of the buildings located in the historic center of the capital have an origin dating back to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, another 200 to 460 XVIII and XIX to and forming a full mix of appealing to the tastes more demanding. ,

Many places are located in the geography of Havana, with special mention to those known as de Armas, the Cathedral, called Plaza Vieja and San Francisco de Asis, the latter near the church and the convent of the same name. ,

The first one is considered the heart of the ancient city, because from the very beginning of the expansion of the then town of San Cristobal de La Habana. ,

Century old also retains distinctive features such as the famous Paseo del Prado and Alameda de Paula known, the latter built in the second half of the eighteenth century, both sites traffic bound for the capital’s residents of those times. ,

Developing formerly called Havana led to the implementation of large construction projects, one of which ended in the emergence of the Alameda de Paula, the oldest ride from the capital of the island. ,

Once demolished the walls of Havana around 1863, action caused by the air of the city expansion that lived in those times, the extramural growth gained momentum under the significant influence of the most diverse architectural trends. ,

In the spaces of the city come together representing buildings from the Renaissance to Art Deco, through the Mudejar, baroque, neoclassicism, eclecticism, art nouveau and Cuban Baroque. ,

The culmination of the latter is shown in the Palace of the General Captains, with a facade dominated by a dozen columns that form large stands, and a front street that preserves the original structure of wood paving. ,

For those who venture through the maze of streets and alleys of the old part of Havana, is present a network of small buildings that feature behind a facade which seems hhaberse stopped time with all the amenities of modern tourism. ,

As a general feature, visitors are attracted by the numerous conditions that facilitate relaxation, supported by the tranquility of small and comfortable lounges, with courtyards full of vegetation and occasional source of clear water. ,

Beside the common features, each of these establishments holds its peculiarities, aimed at specific to certain segments of tourists. ,

As an example, we have the case of Awning, which meets three houses of the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries as trademark has its own kitchen in 17 rooms for those who prefer to prepare their own food. ,

Lovers of good Cuban snuff preferably have their place in the Conde de Villanueva, former mansion of that illustrious nobleman, while El Comendador remembers the position that Cuba had as key to the Gulf at the time of the colony, with an atmosphere allegorical sailor to that stage.
