If you wish to discover the secrets of a city almost five hundred years old, come with us in a walking tour that will leave you speechless. From the Spanish heritage, and starting in 1519, amazing stories of battles, slave trading and architecture will be on the way to meet the four oldest Plazas existing in the original “Villa” named “San Cristobal de la Habana”.

People say that the best way to know a city is to walk it, and Havana has plenty to say through his buildings, history and people.
