Where you'll be

We will begin our experience in "El Templete", the place where the first mass was celebrated in Havana, in 1519, and we will go to the Abdallah mosque, the first of its kind in Cuba. We will also visit the Orthodox Asath Israel synagogue. Along the way, we will talk about the differences between the main Afro-Cuban religions that exist in the Island: the Regla del Palo Monte and the Santería. Related to this last one, we will visit a store for appreciating the most common objects and accessories used in this religion. We will finish our visit in a cafe where you can comment on your opinion about the religious phenomenon in Cuba.
