The place looks unique. First I thought that I had discovered someplace special, but soon discovered that it's another place full of hustlers. Would recommend to walk by to see the murals, but be aware anybody who seems friendly to you; you most likely end up paying for a tour around the place or for their drinks (which are overpriced...

A long alley way that has become a shrine to the Afro-Cuban religion....Santeria is an Afro-Cuban religion with a Catholicism mixture. Santeria is commonly referred to as Voodoo. Buildings were brightly colored and have murals, sculptures and objects..many depict deities and rituals. Much of the art was done by Salvador Gonzales. The guide there told our group that the song... More

This street is a must see in Havana. We took a bike taxi there, which gave us at our request a tour of the city before dropping us of, for 10 CUC for 1 hour. When we entered the Callejon a guy came up to us that showed a badge and told us he was an official something. At first... More

Nice Afro-Cuban neighbourhood in central Havana. Very colourful artists area encompassing a few alleys full of funny bizarre sculptures and murals. Perfect for a photo opportunity.

Has been in all the guidebooks for decades and is so full of hustlers that it makes it impossible to enjoy the space... a great place to witness the underground economy...a meat market in which people come to pick up tourists... and yet tourists keep coming and feeling like they have "discovered" something special

I had the misfortune to be taken to this place, I thought by a newly acquired Cuban friend but as it turned out, by a very untypical (hustler) Jinetero. It was on the pretence there was great Afro-Cuban music to be heard 'at a music festival' and that this festival was only today. So I warily agreed to go and... More

We took a 5 CUC bike ride from Plaza de Armas here (I negotiated for 3 CUC but it was so hot outside I felt bad). The entrance is obvious and there's blaring music. We were super overwhelmed arriving because I thought it would be a long and wide street with dancing, etc like block parties in America (I'm dumb..this... More

Wonderful street in Havana, a must see for artists and poets of all kinds. Quite short, so just do it if you pass by or have time ahead of you
