Afro-Cuban Religions

Learn about the colorful and ancient religions that arrived from Africa, and have since flourished in Cuba.

The Africans that came as slaves to Cuba brought many religions and beliefs. Through a need to hide their practices from the Spanish, these religions morphed and syncretised to become unique in the world. One of them - Santeria is now the most popular of all religions in Cuba and has a profound impact on Cuban society. Learn about these religions with an expert local guide, who will show you around the neighbourhoods of Central Habana and take you into a home of a family of practitioners.

    Muito agradecido a Ana Paula e Johny pelo incrível tour por Cuba. Atenciosos, gentis e conhecedores da historia de Cuba. Havana é uma cidade incrível. Ouvir um som não La Bodeguita, um passeio no Malecon, uma visita ao Museu da Revolução são imprescindíveis. Conhecer Santa Clara, uma cidade encantadora de Trinidad e visitar uma fazenda de tabaco na cidade de Vinales são especialmente magníficos. Enfim, pretendo voltar a Cuba e novamente com a Havana Adventures, que eu recomendo muito!
