The Avenida de los Presidentes de la Habana Avenue is located in the quarter of Vedado, surrounded by statues of relevant Latin American presidents, in the way of Las Ramblas of Barcelona. Among these statues are the ones of Salvador Allende, Simón Bolívar, and Benito Juárez.

In this wonderful avenue known by Cubans as Calle G, is located the great monument to José Miguel Gómez,the second president of Cuba; and another one dedicated to Tomás Estada Palma, his predecessor, who was considered a puppet of the US, despite the only trace of it is a couple of shoes above its pedestal.

To the north of Calle G is located the monument to Calixto García, a sculpture to honor the brave Cuban general to who US military leaders prevent the attendance to the Spanish surrender in 1898, in Santiago de Cuba. The statue represents the general riding a horse, and is surrounded by 24 bronze sheets telling the story of the fighting of Calixto for the Independence of Cuba.

In the side of this avenue facing the ocean is located the Casa de las Américas House, an interesting cultural center housing an art gallery and a bookshop.

This place is quite lively during the evenings, when youngsters visit it looking for fun with their guitars and drums. This atmosphere is specially visible on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
