What are the 5 best places for cocktails and tapas in Havana? What are the 5 best shops for cigars and rum? And where are the 5 best places to take souvenir photos? The 500 Hidden Secrets of Havana reveals these good-to-know addresses and many more. ItÃ¢Â€Â™s an affectionate guide to the city, written by Magalie Raman, who knows the city intimately. She has selected places and details that few people know, like a paladar with traditional Cuban food on the menu and lots of locally created artworks on the walls, the studio of a talented photographer where you can buy iconic images of Havana in the fifties, or a library thatÃ¢Â€Â™s housed in an art deco building with a central patio full of lush greenery. This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the cityÃ¢Â€Â™s best-kept secrets.
Magalie Raman has been travelling to Cuba back and forth for the past ten years, to visit her family there. SheÃ¢Â€Â™s always looking for new hidden secrets in the country sheÃ¢Â€Â™s gotten to know so well.
