A nice stroll.... Mar 17, 2017
A nice walk down to the Malecon from the Capitolio starts at the Parque Central, with the inevitable statue of José Marti, a Cuban poet and writer, one of the heros for the struggle for Cuban independance from Spain. Also the writer of the original verses used in "Guantanamera". The double boulevard that goes down to the Malecon is Paseo de Marti, but the central pedestrian walk through between the roads is the Paseo Prado. You can make this walk as long as you want as there are all sorts of things to look at. A few schools use it for their daily exercise ground. There are also of course, the painters, musicians and cartoonists. On Sundays you'll also find an open-air market for flats and businesses. That is, people come here to trade or sell their flat for money or a straight swap, businesses too. An accepted part of the Havana economy, as on the sides there are lawyers and solicitors to finalise the contracts. Some lovely buildings including the Great theatre of Havana to be seen, and upon arriving at the Malecon the Castillo de San Salvador.
