“Much to do and watch here”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Just spend some time in the shaded area of the square to people watch and relax. Many restaurants and places of interests around this square. The Template is here with the tree history of walking around it 3 times leaving money to make your wish come true. Fortress with moat here too. Not far from the other 3 squares.

“Vive la revolutionary poster!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Look out for the dreadlocked guy in the square here: he lives in an apartment just on the corner and has the best selection of authentic revolutionary posters in Havana. A great souvenir as the rest of the stuff on sale in town is complete tat!

“Charming little park”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Charming little park with beautiful palmas. Some booksellers if you're looking to buy old books, but the prices are outrageous, way to expensive for old books.
