This half day tour starts at Callejón de Hamel, a street located in the working-class Cayo Hueso neighborhood and serves as a sort of open-air Afro-Cuban sanctuary. The street is famous for its huge colourful mural, that pays homage to all the religious cults and movements of African origin that are still active in Cuba. The street also has small shops selling hand-crafted religious objects and on Sundays becomes the venue for rumba shows, popular with locals and tourists alike.

After this visit, the tour continues to an Art Gallery, located in the heart of the former aristocratic neighborhood of Vedado. Here you will have the opportunity to appreciate the controversial works of art of some outstanding contemporary Cuban artists. At the end of the tour, you can enjoy a stop for shopping at Havana's biggest handicraft market.
