Stroll down Paseo del Prado, one of Havana's main avenues. Constructed in the 1770s, the boulevard was designed by French landscape architect Jean-Claude Nicolas Forestier. Take a walk along the tree-lined avenue to see notable city buildings, including the vibrant Hotel Sevilla. European-style mansions fringe the boulevard, reminiscent of Barcelona's La Rambla. Relax on one of the marble benches to cool off and rest, take in the lively atmosphere, and people watch.

  • Fantastic avenue that separates Old Havana from the rest of the city. Memorable buildings abound and of course the colourful cars can't be missed!
  • Remarkable building in Havana. Few steps from Old Havana and a very big contrast with the buildings opposite. Always many fancy vintage taxi around the building. You can't really visit the interior but already nice enough to take pics from outside. The small garden in the front also very clean and well maintained.
