La Muralla de La Habana


"Historic City Walls"
The Havana Wall is an imposing relic of this extraordinary city's colonial past. Originally intended as a defense against marauding pirates and corsairs, the plan was to encircle the city with an impenetrable barrier, the doors of which would shut at a certain hour. Nevertheless, the wall could not stop Havana from extending beyond this boundary. In 1603 the construction was partially demolished. The following sections are still intact: between calles Érgido and Desamparados; the "Puerta del Arsenal"; "Garitas del Ángel", in front of the Museum of the Revolution; and "La Maestranza" on Avenida del Puerto.
