The 500 Hidden Secrets of Havana reveals these good-to-know addresses and many more. It’s an affectionate guide to the city, written by Magalie Raman, who knows the city intimately. She has selected places and details that few people know, like a paladar with traditional Cuban food on the menu and lots of locally created artworks on the walls, the studio of a talented photographer where you can buy iconic images of Havana in the fifties, or a library that’s housed in an art deco building with a central patio full of lush greenery.
This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the city’s best-kept secrets. 500 addresses and facts in total, presented in original lists of 5. Maps & index included.
