Welcome to Calle Obispo!

Narrow, vibrant and eclectic, Calle Obispo runs through the heart of Habana Vieja (Old Havana). A place for shopping, working, living, sleeping, eating, drinking and dancing, Calle Obispo has served as a mirror of Cuban society for centuries, and today it offers a moving image of a nation in transition.
