COLONIAL HAVANA TOUR

Havana City is the Capital, without a doubt, the tourism destination of excellence. Within the city, its historic center (considered by UNESCO World Heritage in 1982) is an obliged reference destination for all visitors who come to this city. Visitors to Old Havana can admire the ongoing restoration works that are giving back splendor to the colonial quarter and its main monuments: the Real Fuerza Castle-the oldest fort in America; the Havana Cathedral, a most notable example of baroque architecture.

•Pick up at the hotel

•Visit to Colonial Havana declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 1982, walking tour in the historic center including main squares, fortresses and buildings built by the Spaniards during the XVI and XIX centuries with stops at Cathedral for some shopping time! This tour offers the history of old: Plaza de Armas, XVI century with Royal Force Castle (1558- 1577), the Palacio del Segundo Cabo or Royal Post Office (1770- 1791), the Palacio de los Capitanes Generales (1776- 1791); the beautiful Santa Isabel hotel- where US President James Carter was lodged when he visited Cuba in 2002- the former residence of Count of Santovenia from 1784 and El Templete from 1828. Plaza Vieja where the restoration process is best explained with a stop at a special corner restaurant which is the museum of beer in Havana. Visit to the 1735 Casa de Condes de Jaruco with the most beautiful stained glass windows in Havana and walls with the original fiezes and a wonderful courtyard. Plaza de San Francisco de Asís from 1628 with the baroque Church and Convent of Saint Francis of Assisi from 1735 and the 1908 Stock Exchange of Havana built by the famous US company Purdy and Henderson in a record time of only 16 months; the Custom House of Havana by Barclay, Parsons and Klapp from 1914. Plaza de la Catedral. Visit the Casa de Condes de Bayona from 1725- currently the Museum of Colonial Art of Cuba- and the Casa del Marqués de Arcos, Casa del Conde de Lombillo and Casa del Marqués de Aguas Claras, all from XVIII Century and the Cathedral, the greatest example of Cuban Baroque from 1777.

•Visit to La Bodeguita del Medio: It is famous not only for its menu of out-of-this-world traditional Cuban dishes but also for its delectable Mojitos where was created and its unique decor. Ever since its opening in 1942, its clientele has included countless world celebrities in the arts and VIPs in the spheres of science and politics. The atmosphere is bohemian, and guests are welcome to write or carve their names anywhere they can find space to do so. Its atmosphere retakes the atmosphere of the traditional inn, adorned here with the "Tres" (typical Cuban guitar), maracas, güiros and bongos.

•Main streets and avenues in Old Havana.

•Stop at the Capitol Building: Resembling Washington D.C.'s Capital Building, EL CAPITOLIO is located on Paseo de Marti, across from Central Park. Built in 1929, El Capitol features a wide stone staircase which leads to the main entrance. Two bronze statues flank each side of the top of the staircase - one dedicated to labor and one to virtue.
