Panoramic Night with Canonazo at El Morro
hrs Estimate Duration
Watch the “canonazo” or cannon shot ceremony at La Cabaña fortress and then see other architectural landmarks in Old Havana before pausing for a cocktail in a celebrated bar.
After departing from the pier, you will begin a walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Old Havana, starting with Cathedral Square. The main attraction is the namesake cathedral, one of the oldest in the Americas.
Nearby, you will find La Bodeguita del Medio, a well-known restaurant and bar where you will stop for a mojito. Celebrities ranging from Ernest Hemingway to Harry Belafonte to Brigitte Bardot have frequented the establishment and autographed the wall.
Continuing on, you drive through the more modern part of Havana before arriving at La Cabaña, once the largest fort in the Americas. It was built as a second line of defense after the British overtook El Morro fortress in the mid-18th century.
Your visit will begin by watching the cannon ceremony. It is a recreation of the cannon that was fired nightly centuries ago to announce the closure of the city walls. Now, each evening at 9pm sharp, the cannon fires one shot in an elaborate ceremony as a reminder of the tradition. Afterwards, you will have free time to explore the fortress and perhaps browse the museum devoted to Che Guevara, who took over the fortress during the Cuban Revolution.
