For View Seek­ers

Porthole Cruise Magazine - - The Insider -

To en­joy un­par­al­leled views of Ha­vana, start with a trip to the top of one of the city’s tallest struc­tures, the tow­er­ing José Martí mon­u­ment that soars 358 feet over the Plaza de la Revolu­ción. As an added bonus, the plaza is one of the best spots in the city to find the vin­tage cars for which Ha­vana is fa­mous. One of the finest views of Old Ha­vana is from one of its new­est ho­tels, the five- star Gran Ho­tel Man­zana Kempin­ski. En­joy a drink in their El Sur­tidor Pool Ter­race and Bar while tak­ing in an amaz­ing view of the old city that in­cludes the grace­ful dome of El Capi­to­lio, the Na­tional Capi­tol Build­ing. When you visit the his­toric El Morro Cas­tle, which just about ev­ery vis­i­tor to Ha­vana does at some point, travel the short dis­tance to the Cristo de la Ha­bana statue. It’s a mas­sive like­ness of Je­sus Christ perched atop a hill that will let you see vis­tas of the city be­low that in­clude a good look at the har­bor and likely the ship you sailed in on.
