Centro Habana is an old quarter in Havana, Cuba. As the name implies,
it’s located in the center of the city – just west of La Habana Vieja
Some of the major sights in this section of the city are the Barrio Chino (Chinatown), El Capitolio, the Sacred Heart of Jesus and St. Ignatius of Loyola Church, and the avenue Paseo del Prado (aka Paseo de Martí), which makes up the border to La Habana Vieja.
Habana is a feast for the eyes. Colonial buildings can be either so
dilapidated that only the facades remain or beautifully restored in
vibrant colors, so typical for the Caribbean. I highly recommend walking
or driving down colorful Calle Reina if you visit Havana.
Scott and I were in Cuba in April, we didn’t have much time to explore
Centro Habana. Most of these images were taken right around Golden Hour.
And quite a few shots in this video are actually photographs, since
that’s all I had time for. At another time, I may publish a video of the
views I captured while driving through this and other Havana
neighborhoods in a classic car taxi…
