page under construction.... come back soon!

dear visitors! Please be patient and come back after coupla days!

A mix of many races and ethnicities, people are always smiling in Havana despite many troubles. The city was founded in 1519 by the Spaniards and by the 17th century, it had become one of the Caribbean's main centres for ship-building. Despite being a populated city, its old centre retains an interesting mix of Baroque and neoclassical monuments, and a homogeneous ensemble of private houses with arcades, balconies, wrought-iron gates and internal courtyards. And what it offers to tourists? sun, cigars, good food and music among others.
