Establishment
“As it says on the name, it's a camera obscura on top of a building on the Old Square. The views from the top of the building are fantastic, and the camera obscura itself is interesting especially for little ones. Very cheap to get in.”

“Located in the heart of Habana Vieja, the cafe and its architecture will bring you back to Havana, circa 1800. It has a special ambiance, inspired decor, and great music, but more importantly, you can try some of the most delicious sweets in the city. All the sweets are great, but I especially recommend the flan and the cupcakes.”

El contraste entre la antigüedad del entorno y la decoración moderna, simple y de muy buen gusto agregan valor a esta experiencia que puede ser tan dulce como quieras. Con una amplísima coctelería, las tapas perfectas para acompañar y el ambiente embriagador no sentirás pasar el tiempo.”
