Havana holidays

Havana was founded in 1519 as an assembly point for ships taking silver to Spain and had a great strategic and commercial importance. The Old City (Havana Vieja), a Unesco world heritage site, is currently being restored to its former glory with beautiful baroque churches, palaces and convents lining its cobbled streets and squares. Classic American cars, glamorous cabaret shows, intoxicating Cuban music and even the state of decay of some of the colonial buildings, battling against the corrosive effects of the sea air, all add to the charm and character of this enigmatic city.
