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.
