maleconIf I had to name the simplest and at the same time most attractive and evocative spot in Havana city, I would certainly say the Malecon. It's probably the most famous and iconic seaside promenade in Cuba, a true reflection of the city's many lives, love, sadness, fun and of course, an outdoor meeting point for thousands of Havana residents every day. Everyone visiting Cuba should take a walk along the Malecon seawall as part of their exploration of the city. Take the route when heading for the old city, or simply stroll along taking in the many sites, sounds and smells.
