Old Havana (Habana Vieja) is the city center of Havana and one of its 15 districts. Habana Vieja is defined by limits of the early colonial settlement that lay within fortified walls. It is roughly shaped like a diamond. The original settlement developed along an axis that extended noth-south from Castillo de la Real Fuerza to Plaza Vieja. Here are the major sites of interest, centered on the Plaza de Armas and the smaller Plaza de la Cathedral.The plazas and surrounding streets shine after a complete restoration, their strcutures newly painted. In the 20-th century, many grandiose structures went up around Parque Central. Today, the park is the social hub of Habana Vieja.
