The recovery of historical centres and their integrated development

The City of Havana, founded at the beginning of the 16th century, is graced with a remarkable heritage of urban and architectural monuments in its historical centre. Due to the natural evolution of the city over the last century and a half the area became a marginal zone, and for several decades it was characterized by a marked deterioration of its buildings, the supplanting of appropriate uses by harmful ones, and poor habitat conditions in general.
