37 Decrepit Building on Malecón in Havana, Cuba

Buildings facing Malecón and the waterfront range in age from the 18th through the mid-20th century. Most are decrepit from decades of sea spray and neglect. They often are abandoned or make-shift housing. But like the wrinkled face of the elderly, there are features to admire. A closer look reveals architectural nuances such as columns, arches, porticos, dentil molding, balusters, balconies and bas-reliefs – all crafted from stone. These facades were beautiful prior to 1960. Hopefully, many of them will be restored and shine again.
