The views from the Parque Histórico Militar Morro Cabaña (Morro-Cabaña Military-Historical Site) over Havana city are spectacular, and crossing the bay to discover its two ancient fortresses (Morro Castle and San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress) is a must-do while in Havana.

Despite both fortresses being located on the opposite side of the bay, they have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO along with Old Havana.

The best time to discover this unique spot is at sunset, as you can attend the iconic “El Cañonazo” (The Cannon Firing), every day at nine in the evening in San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress. The ceremony is performed by actors dressed in period clothing who fire the cannon as it used to be done during the 18th century, up to 1850, to inform everyone that the gates of the city would be closing.

How to get there:

There are several ways of getting to the fortresses:

You can take the buses P8, P11, or P15, and get off at the first stop after the tunnel. You can also get a taxi.

From Old Havana, it can be around four or five CUC.

A third option would be taking the ferry “Casablanca” departing from the Avenida Carlos Manuel Céspedes, Old Havana. From the dock, you only have to follow the road up to the statue of Christ, and turn left.
