region Ciudad de la Habana
Unlike typical colonial cities, Havana has grown around not one but four main squares: Plaza de Armas, a fortress and square used especially for military parades; Plaza de la Catedral, the religious centre of the city; Plaza Vieja, which was home to an important market; and Plaza de San Francisco de Asís, the famous main pier where the Spanish galleons would load and unload their wares.
Old Havana, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982, also has a large number of museums. The Scale Model Museum, located on Merchants Street, is a must. It shows an overview of this beautiful area of the city. Other museums to visit are: the Museum of the City, the Maritime Museum, the Real Fuerza Museum, the Rum Museum, the Museum of Colonial Art and the House of José Martí.
