Five centuries of Havana. Five centuries of building. From the sheltered bay where it began in 1519 to the Havana today. A fascinating stack of stones and styles. The old center (UNESCO World Heritage since 1982) is an architectural outdoor museum. The fortifications and religious buildings from the 16th century are the oldest remains, all in Spanish-Moorish style (such as Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro and Castillo de la Real Fuerza).

The "city of columns", as the Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier baptized the capital, given the many colonnades (columnas), popular in the baroque and neoclassical periods.

In the morning you get an explanation from a professional guide about the colonial and baroque period, walking through the historic center.

After lunch you will see some of the other architectural styles that make Havana so beautiful, you can read more about it here ...
