Casa Vitrales is located in the north part of the historical center of Old Havana, in the Santo Angel neighborhood. The front of the building, identified with the number 106, is on Habana Street, one of the longest streets of the colonial walled city, which runs from sea to sea (from noth to south). This building is also located on one of the tallest elevations of the historical center – La Loma Del Angel (Angel Hill) - which together with the peculiar mapping of the area, defined by narrow and uneven streets, make a remarkable location. Thus, Casa Vitrales has the Callejon de Espada to its back and to its left what is currently known as the Cinco Esquinas Del Angel (the Five Corners of the Angel) caused by the intersection of the Habana, Cuarteles and the Callejon de Espada streets.
To get to the Casa Vitrales, by car or on foot, use as reference the following address in spanish. Calle Habana, numero 106 entre Cuarteles y Chacon.
Casa Vitrales is located in the dynamic sociocultural scenery that characterizes the historical center of Old Havana. It is possible to carry out cultural tours that allow you to truly see the city and its inhabitants.
Casa Vitrales is just a few meters away from: La Loma del Angel (Angel Hill) in which we find the small square and churchof the Santo Angel the place where Cuba’s national hero, Jose Marti, was baptized. This space was popularized by the 1882 novel Cecilia Valdez of Cirilo Villaverde. Very close by we find the national museum of fine arts which gathers the largest collection of Cuban art in existence (from the 16th century to our days). Also within walking distance we have the museum of the Revolution, one of the most important and visited museums of Cuba, which holds artifacts related to the Cuban revolution and its participants. Also very near our location is the Bodeguita del Medio restaurant, one of the most famous ones in Cuba and one that has been visited by such famous figures as Salvador Allende and Gabriel Garcia Marques. Just as close, we have the Floridita restaurant, a place that remains intact in time with Hemingway and his stories, just as the Havana Malecon which outlines the coastline from Old Havana to Vedado as a timeline that spreads along the development of the city.
