Old Havana (Habana Vieja)

  • Not to be missed is the iconic Plaza de Armas, featuring lush gardens surrounded by historic buildings. This is the oldest square in Havana and a perfect starting point for a trip back in time.
  • For a deep dive into Cuba's history, the Castillo de la Real Fuerza is a must-visit. This fortress is one of the oldest in the Americas, and its watchtower offers splendid views of the harbor.

El Malecón

  • The El Malecón esplanade is nothing short of iconic, with locals and visitors flocking to this seafront boulevard, especially at sunset. The Malecón stretches for five miles, offering a kaleidoscopic vista of Havana's landmarks against the Atlantic Ocean backdrop.

The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes

  • For art connoisseurs, the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes houses an impressive collection displaying Cuban art from the colonial times up to the modern era. Here you'll find everything from European classics to daring contemporary pieces. (Wikipedia link)


  • For a vibrant display of Cuban creativity, Fusterlandia, the brainchild of artist José Fuster, turns a sleepy neighborhood into a lively public art space with colorful mosaics and sculptures.

El Capitolio

  • El Capitolio, or the National Capitol Building, with its towering dome, is reminiscent of the U.S. Capitol but with a distinctly Cuban flair. It's been recently restored to its pre-revolution splendor and is a photographer's dream.
