Hello, I live 20 km from Havana in a magical town called Guanabacoa, a place full of stories and legends, considered a National Monument as the capital. For years I participated in projects that worked on its cultural and patrimonial rescue, and because of this I have learned a lot about its history, much of it relevant to the history of Cuba in its different stages. Many times as a hobby I invited my friends to get to know her a little more and they were amazed, and I have decided to share my knowledge with people from other parts of the world. I am friendly and I also like to listen and share experiences.

About the Tour

The tour begins in the Central Park of Guanabacoa, where I will tell you about the origins of Guanabacoa, its first inhabitants and I will tell you the story of how the capital of Cuba was for months. Walking down Martí Street, I will show you the Municipal Museum, where the best museum collection of Afro-Cuban themes can be found, and I will tell you a little about the connotation of African religions in my town. We will visit the home of Francisco Viondi, where Martí lived, and I will tell you the anecdotes of our National Hero in Guanabacoa. We will surround the group of the Escolapios, a Catholic institution that introduced the Normal Schools in Cuba, and where several personalities of Cuban politics and culture were formed. We will arrive at the Parque de la Cotorra, a place of special beauty and we will go up to the Loma de la Cruz, where the most beautiful natural viewpoint in Havana is located, which reveals a fairly wide social landscape and I will tell you the details of the taking of La Havana for the English.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Sitting on the steps of the Church next to the park. I am tall in a black pullover.

Siempre veo el tour como "Gurú", pero hoy me tocó verlo como "Walker". Hamed Fue excelente. Un tour creo necesario para todxs aquellos que quieran ver más allá de la Habana sin salirse de la Habana. Guanabacoa es casi igual de vieja que la Habana, y tiene una historia fascinante. Lo mejor es el final, la mejor vista natural de la bahía y la Habana en si. Muy recomendable.
