Centro Cultural Antiguos Almacenes: an arty market

shopping

Located in an old warehouse, this great local craft market is the best place for souvenirs in all of Cuba.

It is possible, in Havana, to find typical Cuban souvenirs without the usual crassness and kitsch.

The Centro Cultural Antiguos Almacenes de Depósito San José is a giant craft market offering the most iconic objects of Havana: garish-coloured paintings by local artists, guayaberas (short-sleeve, open-neck Cuban shirts), sculptures, leather, jewellery, and various trinkets and gadgets bearing the image of Che Guevara The souvenirs here are of high quality, which is why you'll see as many locals as tourists among the shoppers.

The metal-framed structure itself, an old, fully renovated maritime warehouse, very retro and Art Deco, is worth the trip in itself.
