Cuba always seduces with its mixture of decadent past and intense present, full of vitality, culture and art.

This year Havana, the capital of the island and its economic and cultural centre, is celebrating.

November 16 marks the 500th anniversary of its foundation under the name of Villa de San Cristóbal de La Habana.

It is one of the oldest cities in what the settlers called the New World: a history that is evident in its people, in its architecture, in its avenues and stately buildings that are gradually being decorated and ‘‘reborn’’ thanks to an ambitious rehabilitation plan for the city.
