23 Waterfront Transition in Havana, Cuba

The waterfront along Malecón from the cruise terminal to Iglesia de Paula is in visible transition. Some of the historic architecture along the harbor have renewed elegance after careful restorations. A new ferry terminal – Emboque de Luz – is under construction. The 18th century promenade called Alameda de Paula has been revitalized with shops and restaurants. Its 330 foot length is lined with trees and is a pleasant esplanade for a stroll. Plus, there is an occasional greenspace like the Parque Aracelio Iglesias. Yet many buildings remain neglected, their once handsome facades in advanced state of decay.
