Introduction to Havana


Havana is as much a capital of faded glory as of high, unbridled spirits; a city defined by its contradictions and struggles that is slowly rising like a phoenix from the ashes.

Havana contains a beautiful pastiche of architecture, from the UNESCO protected Baroque and Neoclassical monuments of Old Havana to the affluent Vedado neighborhood, where Art Deco buildings abound.

You can also head to the northern shore and amble along the popular Malecón, a stretch of coastline where natives and visitors alike gather to walk, mingle, revel in the sight of Havana’s landmark buildings and gaze out onto crystal blue waters.
