"Historic City Walls"

The remains of the historic city wall in Old Havana are imposing relics of the city's extraordinary colonial past. Originally intended as a defense against marauding pirates and corsairs, the wall was designed to encircle the city with an impenetrable barrier, the doors of which would close at a certain hour. Nevertheless, the wall could not stop vibrant Havana from extending beyond its boundaries. After the partial demolishment of the wall in 1603, there are only a few sections left intact, one of which is now a celebrated landmark in front of the Museum of the Revolution. Other notable sections include the remaining "Puerto del Arsenal," "Garitas del Angel," and "La Maestranza."
