This is Havana, the capital of Cuba and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Take a visit to Havana with National Geographic Travel as the mystique of Havana Vieja or Old Havana is revealed.

Truly, Havana, with its 900 historic buildings, is a city that time forgot.

Most notable of these are the Castillo de Loyal de Fuerza, one of the oldest existing forts in the Americas, the Catedral de San Cristobal and the Museo de la Ciudad.

Until today, the work of preserving the historic city continues.

Visitors remember Havana as a city trapped in time.

But it is also famous for its salsa music, open-air bazaars and parties that last through the night.
