What you'll do

We'll explore San Isidro–a part of Old Havana that was once known as a center of smuggling, gambling, and prostitution that is now a potential area for development. I'll tell you about its history and open the door for you to understand the way of life in San Isidro. I'll introduce you to a couple of neighbors who will invite us to their home. There, we'll be able to talk, share opinions and a nice cuban coffe with them. We'll explore the hidden places of the community like art galleries, churches, a small sports center, and private businesses. We'll enjoy the magnificent artistic work present in the area.

Claudia

I'm a young historical researcher. Three years ago I decided to make a change in my professional life and to focus all my strenghs and knowledge in San Isidro neighborhood. I had the oportunity to create a bond with this special Havana community and become one of them, while I was designing a rehabilitation project to the area. I'm passionate about my country's history. I live in Havana and I think understanding local history is the best way to understand the core of a country's identity and culture. I love to show visitors Cuba's past by giving them a window into the history of a typical neighborhood of Old Havana.
