The Spanish empire took the city as center of operation mining gold, silver and many other valuable resources from these lands.
Of course the journey doesn’t end there. Journey forward to the center of the city and absorb a rich history of culture and architecture of a Republic founded at the beginning of the century.
Walk the Central Park and observe the magnificent Capitol, the “Gran Teatro de la Habana”, and Prado street. Commemorating moments of history, these locations reverberate with stories of young revolutionary heroes, past governments corruption and crime syndicates.
Finally, the Malecon stands as a treasure, a balcony to the sea, a special place for the special people in your life. For many years it has been a symbol for the Cuban people and the street where every year we celebrate our “Parrandas”.
