San Cristobal


cuba heritage .com - The Very Best of Cuban CultureThe San Cristobal Agency is part of the commercial operation of the Office of the City Historian of Havana, the organisation responsible for the restoration of the historical centre of Cuba’s capital.  The Oficina del Historiador de la Ciudad de La Habana was set up in the 1930's by the first City Historian, Emilio Roig de Leuchsenring.  When Dr Roig died in the early sixties he was succeeded by Eusebio Leal Spengler, who has steered the organisation to the world-renowned position it holds today. 

The Office of the City Historian of Havana is now a large and complex institution employing over 7,000 people in the restoration of the colonial heart of the city, not only in terms of its built heritage but also in the way of life of its inhabitants, for Dr Leal and his team are also dedicated to bringing about a social renaissance in Old Havana. 

In 1993 a law was passed by the Cuban government which enabled the Office to establish a commercial division, all profits from which are immediately invested in further restoration, in a laudably virtuous circle. The San Cristobal Agency (which was named in honour of the city founded as La Villa de San Cristóbal de La Habana) is part of that network, as are all the hotels and most of the restaurants in Old Havana; thus anyone booking Old Havana hotels or the services of San Cristobal may be assured that they are supporting the restoration of the historical heart of the city and the improvement of the quality of life of its inhabitants.
