Hotel Nacional de Cuba

Located in the center of the Vedado neighborhood, in Havana, housed in an imposing eclectic architecture of the 30s with a view of the esplanade of the Malecón, the legendary Hotel Nacional de Cuba is considered a symbol of history, culture and Cuban identity. It was declared a National Monument and awarded d the status of Memory of the World at the National level granted by the United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO).

At the garden of the hotel, you still can see two of the Santa Clara Battery cannons that belonged to the Havana Defense System at the end of the Spanish colonial period, and are now included, together with Old Havana, in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.
