Had I known about this place before my last day in Havana, I would have spent more time there and in the surrounding neighbourhood. First of all, it is associated with Santeria, which I really wanted to learn more about, and it is an interesting...More

Street art that is made of random items. It is a small street free to visit. You can find many bath tubs here cemented into walls or street chairs. I wouldn't say that it is a must visit. Only if you have plenty of free...More

Definitely a place you need to visit - so much art and cool bars. Locals are super friendly and will give you a full tour of the place. A mini Shoreditch would b the best way to describe it.

This is a special place to see at the limits of Plaza and Old Havana. Packed with art and culture. Very cool little spot.

An interesting little street full of beautiful street art, murals and statues made out of random objects. Worth a stroll down, plenty of seating (made out of bath tubs) and tourists & locals milling about. Free to visit - just walk down the street.

Highly recommendable, especially if there are cultural activities such as the celebration of Holy Week, that of holy does not have the name.

It is an Street opened at any time but from 9 to 5 workers from Callejón helps the tourists which arrive looking for information. Every Sunday at the beginning of the afternoon 12:00 they organise activities.

I doubt it will be on the walking tour, since it's a bit out of the way. They only do their presentations on Sunday. You might see some indications of Santeria just walking around the city, though. Ask your guide.
