Full description
There’s a lot more to Havana than first meets the eye, and on this 2-hour walking tour you will discover one of the coolest cultures in the city.

Learn about the various syncretic Afro-Cuban religions practiced widely in Cuba, and get expert explanations from an English-speaking guide. They will walk you through various parts of central Havana, taking you into the homes of devotees of the various religions, some of which are similar to voodoo.

The tour starts and finishes in the spectacular Callejon de Hammel, a small and colorful alley in the center of the city, created by local resident Salvador Gonzáles Escalona.
