Havana Carnival in Cuba
Havana has Spanish colonial architecture in abundance – and a great Art Festival and Carnival.
It’s difficult not to be touched by the grace and heritage that lines the streets. Grand facades, huge wooden doors, art deco windows, vintage cars and narrow sidewalks epitomise the Havana we know today.
Havana was first called “San Cristobal de la Habana” and for over 200 years Havana was the most important Spanish port in the Caribbean.
Today, Havana is noted for its peeling buildings and vintage automobiles
