27 Waterfront Artisan’s Market in Havana, Cuba

In 1885, this building on Avenida del Puerto was built by Compania de Almacenes as a waterfront warehouse. At the time, the structure was the most advanced wharf along the Havana Harbor. In 2009, it was transformed as the new home for the Almacenes San José Artisan’s Market. It is now called Centro Cultural Almacenes de San José. Beneath barren steel rafters, locals display their paintings, handicrafts and wares from cramped kiosks. The market is popular among tourists searching for a memento of their trip to Cuba.
