Havana Architecture Beyond the City Wall & Urban Development

A specialised tour that allows for a full appreciation of Havana outside the city walls; settlements that have appeared since the end of the 18th century and have been consolidated through the 20th century.

The tour includes:
  • Visit to the Scale Model of the City to understand the urban development of the city.

  • Tour of Miramar, an exclusive and residential neighbourhood started in the 1930s and completed in the 1950s with a visit to the mansion, ‘La Maison’, as an example of the domestic architecture.

  • Tour of Vedado, an example of the modern city planning (beginning of the 20th century). Approach to emblematic constructions such as the López Serrano and Focsa buildings (Art Deco and Modernism), and a visit to the Hotel Nacional de Cuba (eclecticism).

  • Tour of the Havana Malecon, Havana’s seafront.

  • Panoramic Tour of La Rampa avenue (examples of ‘heroic’ architecture such as the iconic Coppelia Ice Cream Parlour and Pabellón Cuba).

  • Visit to the lovely mansion, La Casa de La Amistad, former residence of Doá Catalina Laza and a good example of residential Art Deco from the beginning of the 20th century.

Duration: 3 hours
