Photos that will awaken your desire to visit Havana

The beauty of Cuba is undeniable. It is a country that does not leave tourists who visit it indifferent for various reasons. One of them is its capital, Havana , which these days is more fashionable than ever thanks to the song popularized by Camila Cabello.

To give you an idea of ​​what awaits you there, nothing better than seeing the photographs shown below. They are by Edin Chávez, a photographer who has managed to capture all the essence of the most important city in the country.

One of the most beautiful cities in the world

In his blog he tells us that he has been to Cuba several times and that has allowed him to take between 500 and 6,000 photographs of Havana, although he has decided to select the best ones so that we do not waste time looking at so many snapshots.

Edin considers it a paradise for photographers, and the truth is that he is right. Its streets, despite being quite old, give off the same joy as its people, perhaps that is why the colors are the main protagonists.

You can see it in the facades of the buildings, but also in the bodies of the " almendrones ", the typical Cuban cars that are actually American cars from the 1950s. All of them survived Fidel Castro and are a symbol of La Havana

The landscapes are incredible, the same can be said for the architecture and the music. It is an inimitable place that envelops the tourist from the first day to make him feel at home.


Must see visits in Havana

What do I recommend you visit if you travel to the capital of Cuba one day? Basically the places I mention below:

The Malecón in Havana : It is a huge avenue with six lanes (three for each direction) with a wall that extends 8 kilometers along the north coast of the city.

The oldest streets : You will hallucinate with everything that surrounds you and you will take some spectacular photos. People will not fault you; quite the opposite.

The port : It is the most important port in Cuba and receives the visit of large vessels full of tourists. It was created taking advantage of the natural bay of Havana and is usually one of the places where it is easy to see the "almendrones."

The Great Theater of Havana : It is the headquarters of the National Ballet of Cuba, a spectacular building both inside and out. It was inaugurated in 1838 and was recently restored for the last time (between 2013 and 2015).

Castillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro : It is known as the Castillo del Morro and was built in 1585 by Juan Bautista Antonelli during the Spanish imperial period. The most beautiful thing is its illuminated tower, which was built after destroying the original in 1844.

Central Park of Havana : It is another place that you cannot miss. It is very central and full of good atmosphere. They built it after breaking down the walls that protected the city. Two years before its inauguration there was a statue of the Queen of Spain Isabel II, but the North Americans took it upon themselves to remove it in 1899.
