Callejon de Hamel (Hamel Street)

Hamel Street in Havanna is spattered with art: colourful paintings adorn building walls, sculptures and other forms of creative expression by different artists decorate the street, while locals spread good vibes by playing music and (occasionally) dancing.

Do & See

There is plenty to do and see in fast-evolving Havana, with modern hot-spots for art, culture and culinary effort emerging at an ever-increasing rate. Beyond the staples of Habana Vieja and the Malecón lie Havana's attractive newer districts, and unmissable attractions like the eccentric "Fusterlandia" or the original former home of celebrated novelist Ernest Hemingway.
