Attractions near the Hotel Raquel


Tres Reyes del Morro Castle

The Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro is perhaps the most emblematic of all Cuban fortresses. Its construction began in 1589 and concluded in 1630. In its day it was considered a fundamental piece for defending Havana against corsairs and pirates. The lighthouse was added a few years after its construction (45 m), and is considered the unequivocal distinctive seal of Havana.
Place: Ciudad de La Habana


Nine o'clock Cannon Blast Ceremony

The Cannon Blast ceremony is one of the oldest and attractive traditions of Havana. In colonial days, the shots signalled the closing and opening of the gates of the walled city and the rising of the chain across the entrance to the harbour. The tradition of firing a cannon every night at 9:00 pm was kept even after the wall was torn down and is still used for checking your watch.
Place: Ciudad de La Habana


José Martí Memorial

Located in historical Revolution Square in the center of Havana. This site offers visitors a view of the life and works of the National Hero of the Republic of Cuba. The base of the monument consists of four exhibition halls. The viewpoint on the last floor of the obelisk (138 m), also the highest point in the city, offers a magnificent panoramic view of Havana.
Place: Ciudad de La Habana.


El Templete

This small neo-classical style construction was built in the second half of the 18th Century. It is located in Plaza de Armas on the site where the first public mass was celebrated and also the site of the first town council of the nascent town of San Cristóbal de La Habana. The Templete resembles a Doric temple and houses three commemorative canvasses by the famous French painter Juan Bautista Vermey. One of the walls exhibits the plate that declares Old Havana a World Heritage Site.
