Havana’s Secret Face: CENTRO HABANA

Mornings Evenings Havana


We walked through the beautiful streets of Havana, the streets everybody talking about, photographed by every visitor, old but full of memories, houses resisting ages… We have seen it all. Now, are you ready to travel in the non-touristy, just Cubans living part of Havana..? So back streets of Havana …! Then let’s go..! I’m taking you to Centro Habana..


Capitolio is one of the most important building in Havana.. Under construction for many years and no allowed to enter. But its presence on the main street is amazing..



You will love this building which is very close to Capitolio.. Especially if you are an architecture lover.. Great Theatre surely suits well with Paseo Del Prado.. By the way, Paseo Del Prado is the street which is middle of La Habana Vieja and Habana Centro.. This is street which Chanel Fashion Show was held also. So it is famous 🙂

We used to see many old-antiquie car in Havana and we have had a Havana tour with a red one. ( I had told our Havana tour with an old car and post a video also here.. ) We also used to see Coco taxis. But here, we don’t see old cars or coco taxi so frequently. It is obvious that the locals use Bici taxies as public transport…
