Havana’s Cerro Ave. Weathered by Time

Photo Feature by Luis Rondon Paz


HAVANA TIMES – The Calzada del Cerro Avenue, located in the municipality of the same name, since its construction in 1803, followed by the flourishing of its mansions and villas around it until the middle of that century, earned it an important place in the history of Havana. This is due in part to its great variety and architectural beauty.

However, 215 years later, when you walk along the avenue, there are only vestiges of what was once a symbol of good taste, development and beauty.

The following photos bear witness to what time took away.
