Plaza Vieja (Old Square, Havana)

Plaza vieja is just a few minutes walk from Residencia Santa Clara. This historical landmark recently restored offers visitor not only beautiful colonial architecture, but also a good choice of bars, coffee houses, restaurants, and local attractions.

It remains well lit at night, and attracts musicians and street performers making it a popular destination among visitors to spend the afternoons, enjoy the sunset, and admire the world-famous Cuban dancing skills.

The square dates back to the 1500s and was already a popular residential area during the British occipation in 1762. Lots of history and lots of hidden corners for the savvy traveller to explore.
