Experience Highlights

Old Havana

You can admire the view while our specialized guide explains the system of fortresses that protected Havana from corsair and pirate attacks. The Spanish built this fortress in the 18th century, in response to attacks by the British.

At 9 p.m. your group will get to watch the cannon-firing ceremony. When San Carlos was a working fortress the cannon shot signaled the walls of the city were about to close.
