CASA PARTICULAR OLD HAVANALike other cities built under the government of Spain by the Law of the Indies,Havana at least conform to the legislation that cities needed to be laid out in a grid pattern around a single central plaza, which was to house the main public, civic and religious buildings, including the church, palace governors and so on. In addition to the main square, Havana has several places, including the Plaza de Armas, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza de San Francisco and Old Town Square.

The city grew rapidly during the nineteenth century, forcing the local government to introduce planning laws in 1818 and 1862, queregula land use and construction of new urban and suburban neighborhoods..

The new project had to be exposed in a network plan which included the width of the streets and increased from 6 million to 14 million Demetros in the suburbs (compare, for example, the streets of Havana Vieja with Centro Habana and Vedado, which were developed largely after the introduction of planning laws).

Early Cuban architecture was strongly influenced by laarquitectura of Spain. Many of the colonial town houses conform to a basic style: the large wooden doors leading to a house on one built ground around a central open courtyard (see, for example, the La Mina (Plaza de Armas restaurant ) or El Patio (Cathedral Square). over time, the number of plants within these buildings and increased construction, was the man, the Baroque style.

  • Havana Center

Havana Center (Centro Habana) was formerly the most elegant part of Havana and its main shopping center is in the streets of San Rafael and Neptune, which were nothing more than shopping streets of Havana.

The dividing line between old and Havana Centro Habana is the meadow is nothing but a street that at its center there is a park along lña street with large bronze lions and starts on the boardwalk and ends at the Capitol built between 1770 and mid 1830. This wide street was meant to compete with the boulevards of many European cities such as Paris and Madrid.

However, the central area of Havana does not get many tourists as Old Havana and has World Heritage status so that has not been allocated resources to surestauración.

Vedado is one of the new neighborhoods of Havana. It is built when American influence on the island was at its peak, after the Spanish-American War. At this time, the United States ruled Cuba and many US companies invested in Havana.

The influence of American wealth is clearly visible in the residential area of Miramar, which was designed in a similar way the garden American city. In the early years of the revolution, wealthy white residents of this neighborhood, were the first to leave Cuba.

Magnifica casa particular

La estancia en casa de Nelson fue genial. La habitación, muy amplia y con aire acondicionado, tenía baño privado y una pequeña cocina, adenmás de una terraza en la que pudimos disfrutar de agradables ratos al aire libre. La experiencia de alojarnos en la Habana Vieja fue maravillosa, viviendo el día a día de la ciudad con su gente, su música, los vendedores ambulantes.... una pasada. Y a cinco minutos andando del Capitolio!! El trato que recibimos por parte de Nelson fue inmejorable, nos hizo sentir como en casa. Si volviesemos a La Habana, sin duda repetiriamos!!! Muchas gracias por todo Nelson!!
