Habana Centro, The Blondera
Arhitecture of Havana can seem like a confusing jigsaw puzzle, but work out how to put the pieces together and a beautiful picture emerges.
Take a walking tour of the five most important colonial plazas around Old Havana. Each with a soul all its own. Plaza de Armas is a leafy oasis on a sunny day while Plaza Vieja is known for its excellent array of restaurants and coffee shops.
Plaza de la Catedral is home to Havana’s most impressive church (also free to visit) and don’t miss the artsy Callejón del Chorro nearby. Breezy Plaza de San Francisco de Asis is closer to the bay and a favorite spot for pigeons.
