Area Guide

In addition to embassies, Quinta Avenida has a lot of the neighborhood’s most interesting buildings. Before Castro’s revolution in the 1950s, this neighborhood became an important residential area for Battista’s upper class. You can still see evidence of Miramar’s high-class past in the area's 20th-century mansions.

While you’re in Miramar you should visit the Museo del Ministerio del Interior, which provides an interesting look into the Cuban prospective on the CIA's attempt to get rid of Fidel Castro. Browse the many shops at the Miramar Trade Center, the largest shopping center in Cuba.
