Old Havana and its Fortifications

Namhansanseong World Heritage Center

Namhansanseong World Heritage Center

Havana was founded in 1519 by the Spanish. By the seventeenth century, it had become one of the Caribbean's main centres of shipbuilding. Although it is today a sprawling metropolis of two million inhabitants, its old centre retains an interesting mix of Baroque and neoclassical monuments, and a homogeneous ensemble of private houses with arcades, balconies, wrought-iron gates and internal courtyards.
