A nicely designed plaza with lots of food choices. I went twice for the used book/ antique market, but now it seems they only set up 3 days a week, and I missed it this trip. It's a must-visit if you can catch it on the right day.

This may be one of my favorite spots in Old Havana. It's certainly a great spot to people watch and on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays (starting at about 10am) there is a great flea market complete with old books, posters and Cuban artifacts. It's also the home of the Museo de la Ciudad and many cafe's are nearby. The trees... More

This is a good place to include on any walking tour of Havana. Another free place to visit, take photos, check out architecture and hang out with locals, we really enjoyed spending an hour or two here while in Havana.

In Old Havana, this is a beautiful park with history all around. The buildings are old Spanish style.

On Sundays the flower sellers are everywhere in this area. Beautiful place to stroll and relax after visiting the Palacio de los Capitanes.

This square has a lot of charm: it has a French influence in its architecture and it's the location of the Templete (a neoclassic temple) and of a fortress hosting the Naval Museum. It ends with a view of the Morro, while on the other side, you can enjoy a walk through a small market of antiquities (old books, old... More
