Afro-Cuban Religions

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

Service are OFAC compliant under the general license “Support for the Cuban people” 515.574

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.
