Old Havana Tour Main Attractions

Capitol Building (El Capitolio)

Built in 1929 as the new pres­i­den­tial and gov­ern­men­tal palace, this mag­nif­i­cent build­ing copies the design of the Capi­tol build­ing in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. The build­ing marks the 0 kilo­me­ter of Cuba’s high­way system!

Old Square (Plaza Vieja)

At the begin­ning, the “Old Plaza” was built in the 1500s. Back then it was a site of exe­cu­tions, pro­ces­sions, bull­fights and fies­tas. Since then, recent ren­o­va­tions have helped make this square and its sur­round­ing struc­tures among the most beau­ti­ful in Havana.

Bishop’s Street (Calle Obispo)

One of the best-known and most pleas­ant streets in Old Havana, this was the first street in Old Havana to be pedes­tri­an­ized and restored; it boasts a wide assort­ment of shops, cafes, and art displays.

El Floridita

Vis­it the bar where the Daiquiri was born! Ernest Hem­ing­way used to vis­it often the Cra­dle of the Daiquiri. His bronze stat­ue stands in the place he used to sit to enjoy his drinks. In 1953 Floridi­ta bar was one of the sev­en most famous bars in the world!

Merchants Street (Calle Mercaderes)

Its name most prob­a­bly derives from the fact that dur­ing Havana’s first years almost all mer­chants (mer­caderes in Span­ish) had set their shop on this street. As a result, along with Ofi­cios street, this is one of the most impor­tant lanes of the His­toric Cen­ter where restau­rants and shops converge.
