    Description

    “As far as cities go, Havana is a festering treasure chest, a primary color...." (Brin-Jonathan Butler, Cuban-Canadian author)

    A trip to Havana, Cuba, otherwise known as the “City of Columns”, tops many bucket lists for good reason. The mere mention of this once-hidden gem of a city, situated on the western part of the largest Caribbean island nation, evokes the breathtaking imagery of sun-soaked streets and sprawling, golden-sand beaches surrounded by twinkling, almost impossibly crystalline waters, reminiscent of pastel sapphires. Nostalgic types are more likely to envision the time capsule-like qualities of Havana, namely the delightful rows of brightly-colored buildings painted in various shades of canary-yellow, watermelon-pink, and tangerine-orange, and the funky, non-ironic collection of vintage '50s cars cruising the streets. The stunning murals and mosaics, ranging from realistic and beautifully poignant black-and-white pieces to fantastical abstract works and uniquely traditional, stylized opuses, only add to the intoxicating vibrancy of the city. Even those who aren’t there can practically imagine the robust bouquet of classic Cuban cigars mingling with the mouthwatering aroma of freshly brewed, home-grown coffee.

    Havana: The History and Legacy of Cuba’s Capital chronicles the rise of the Cuban city, and the turbulent history that has made it one of the world’s most interesting locations. You will learn about Havana like never before.
