Cuba's capital and major commercial center, Havana manages to be very old and very modern at the same time.
Get some historical perspective at El Morro and Palacio De Los Capitanes Generales. Explore hidden gems such as Castillo de la Real Fuerza and Taquechel Pharmacy Museum. There's still lots to do: make a trip to El Malecon, see the interesting displays at Church and Convent of St. Francis of Asisi, get to know the fascinating history of Old Havana, and steep yourself in history at Old Square (Plaza Vieja).
