The city is doing a remarkable job in reviving this historic Cuban Quarter. The architectural Cuban flavor is seen in the wrought iron balconies and brick facades. Spanish tiles add colorful contrasts to the aging buildings. Located within the Quarter are enough restaurants, bars and speciality shops to keep you busy for the day and into the night.
One of our favorites was a little cigar shop, name forgotten, in which a very young and pretty Cuban girl rolled cigars by hand and sold them on the spot.
