Havana will knock you off your feet with its bustling art and cultural scene—and you don’t even have to step inside its museums to explore it. Street art is thriving in the capital of Cuba and here are three spots that will make you fall in love with it.

Callejon de Hamel

This alley in Havana may be small and narrow, but its heart is as big as it gets. Callejon de Hamel is one of the best places to experience Cuba in its full glory and it will win you over with its colorful walls covered with murals and rumba music that will serve as a soundtrack to your visit.

San Isidro de La Habana Vieja

You’ll stumble upon many amazing works of street art while exploring Havana’s Old Town. If you’re not sure where to start, you can kick things off from San Isidro, since it’s one of Havana’s street art hotspots in the very heart of the city.


The brainchild of the local artist José Fuster, Fusterlandia is one of Havana’s most quirky attractions and that’s part of its charm. This public-art installation mostly consists of colorful mosaics, which transformed the rundown neighborhood of Jaimanitas into a popular tourist attraction with art lovers.
