Places - Cuba's Western Region


Just west of the Vedado district, across the Almendares river is the extremely opulent and formerly posh Miramar district that borders the sea and home to magnificent mansions, embassies and some of the best hotels in Havana.  Havana’s famous “Quinta Avenida” or 5th Avenue traverses the district from east to west and is home to some of the most lavish and eccentric residential architecture in Havana. Today, the district is home to most of the foreign embassies and consulates and has a growing culinary scene of international restaurants.
