So, you are interested on Havana’s history and architecture? This is the experience you need! We will start by visiting the majestic Paseo del Prado, talking about this street’s history and future plans, stopping at the most interesting buildings. Then we will delve into Old Havana, passing through its 4 main squares. I will talk a little about the emergence and urban consolidation of the city, as well as the most important buildings that have been rehabilitated, their current function and the social impact they have on the Havana's population. It will be a few hours full of curiosities, debates and reflections on the architecture of the city, both traditional and contemporary.
