What you'll do

Havana is an authentic merge of cultures, customs, purposes and feelings. Such a rich history hides, of course, mysteries and curiosities that make it even more interesting. That's what our experience is all about. You will be part of a conference/workshop imparted by a History proffesor of the Havana University, assisted by a local Philosophy and History student, where you are going to discover hot stories that took place in the city, regarding subjects like: controversial personalities, religious practices, mafia, politics, traditional celebrations, etc. You'll become a connoisseur of Havana's stories that even cubans don't know about. Authentic cuban coffee, cigar and rum will be offered to accompany our talk. To the extent possible, the experience will include visiting locations where those stories took place. If you would like to book a date that is not currently offered, please contact us and we might make it happen. The experience will be co-hosted by my partner Guido Bertoni, who is a Philosophy and Psychology student at Havana University.

Carlos Javier

I have a great passion for History wich lead me to become a professor of that discipline in the University of Havana. I have always like to share my love for History and make people bond with places and traditions through it, therefore it is my interest that everyones learns about History, specially such an attractive one as ours. I'm a very sociable person (or at least that's what my friends say) and I like to converse and generate debates. It's important to me to combine the proccess of learning with entertainment, because I want people to learn but I also like for them to have fun doing it.

What's included

Drinks
We will offer a small bottle of water, a hot beverage such as coffee or tea, some cuban rum and a complementary cigar.
