The forbidden neighborhood

Havana is a small and beautiful city. When a first time traveler thinks about Cuba’s capital most likely imagine small streets crowded with people, bars and music. All around old and dilapidated buildings. While this is not so far from reality, this picture belongs most just to Old Havana district than the rest of the city.

Not so far from Old Havana there is a modern neighborhood, evidence of the luxury and good life that Cuba experienced in the XIX century. This is Vedado, a quarter where the rich and prestigious families used to live. Still today some of those houses are family homes, some others were converted into cultural centers, embassies or state offices.

But Vedado not always represent the splendor of that time. It is rather a recent district that at one time was only a dense forest that protected the city from pirate attacks. During colonial times this area was name Vedado, which means “forbidden”.

It wasn’t possible to build houses at this place because the forest was used to block the view from the west. The penalties for intruders included loosing an arm or a leg.

It was until the late 19th century that the quarter was developed. The engineer Luis Yboleon Bosque designed broad straight avenues in a grid style with wide pavements, splendid houses and big gardens.

Today, it is still an exclusive neighbourhood with many Embassies and Consulates located there. Good hotels, famous restaurants and some government ministries. Also there is the Plaza de la Revolución, a venue for major celebrations, is the political centre of Havana and the whole of Cuba, as well as a highly symbolic place.
