Havana’s royal fairytale park: Jardín Diana de Gales

Havana’s royal fairytale park: Jardín Diana de Gales

At its center is a 3-meter-tall column is by acclaimed Cuban artist Alfredo Sosabravo. There’s also an engraved Welsh slate and stone plaque from Althorp, Diana’s childhood home, donated by the British Embassy.

The garden sits just behind the Lonja de Commercio at one corner of Plaza de Sanfransisco. It actually backs onto the Casa de los Esclavos (Obrapía, esq. Av. del Puerto), a slave-merchant’s home now serves as the principal office of the city historian.

This is a place to come when you want to take the heat out of the day, comfortably bathed in shade from its leafy surrounds, it is something of a hidden gem which is worth seeking out for those footsore sightseers of Havana. February 2013
