Calle Obispo is an exciting street where Hemmingway wrote many of his novels. The street is closed to traffic and there are hundreds of bars and shops on both sides. Change your money into the local currency not the tourist cu*s.

One of main streets in Old Havana. I do not agree with some opinions that tourism is completely dead now and do not come here. Of course it is true that is not even half the same. However it takes time to recover and we need to support it. On the other hand there are some advantages of not so many tourists as well. You can explore city without any crowds.

So many restaurants and stores. So much history. So much art. An open market for all types of art and jewelry; I found a little expensive. Can be busy, and a little crowded, Be patient and enjoy.

If you visit Old Havana, you can't miss walking along Calle Obispo on more than one occasion. Its pretty busy and lined with both government and small, independent shops and galleries, as well as bars and restaurants. You can find most things you want along this long street.

There are many restaurants along this street . Eat at the STATE owned restaurant where the food is better and cheaper than the private restaurants and the private restaurants charges you 20 % for service and 20% for being in a special zone (which is all bull manure). The state restaurants do not have pushy sales persons at the front of the place and the prices are all shown.

Obispo is a popular main street in Old Havana bustling with life. It was designed as a narrow street in the 16th Century in order to protect the pedestrians from the intense sun. There are lots of stores, activities, bars/cafes, music, eateries, street concerts, arts and crafts along the street. Basically, it's got it all. At the end of this street is a famous cocktail bar/fish restaurant, which was reportedly frequented by Ernest Hemingway, for it's Daiquiris. The name of this bar is called Floridita. A visit to this street is a must, one can spends hours around this area.

We came in on a cruise ship and this street is quite easy to locate. Exit the terminal, make a right and cross the street. Obispo street ends by the port so you can only go in one direction. It should be about the second street as you walk ahead. Hope on our next visit we can spend more time here.

This street is great in so many ways.

The music coming from every direction, watching the locals, the "authentic" Cohiba cigars being offered, the bars, the food, the stores, etc etc.

Should not be missed and take your time exploring it.

very romantic lane in the heart of the old Havana, on one of the corners is La Floridita, probably one of the Hemingway's favourite spots.The daiquiri there is not cheap but you must have it.Take a selfie with a bust of Hemingway left from the entrance and enjoy cuban life music and great atmosphere.

Pedestrian street that has some variety of places to eat, drink and enjoy the local scene. Has a good Foreign Exchange too although the staff are miserable and unhelpful

The important street goes back to 1519. It was conceived as a narrow thoroughfare to protect the people from the sun. Public buildings, stores, cafes,drugstores, bakeries and hotels were built along the street.

Today Obispo Street is great for strolling and bustles of life - a blend of tourist and locals. Its lined with shops offering handicraft, arts and books, bars, restaurants and holes in the walls snack shops.
