Havana’s craft market has just been relocated to the Centro Antiguos Almacenes de Depósito San José (19), an old warehouse on the harbourside.

Craft Market Old Havana is located in Havana
Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.
The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.
The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.
Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.
Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

We stopped here as part of our tour and kind of figured it would be just the same kind of market with the same touristy stuff like in Varadero, which it pretty much is. The one big exception is that it is quite big and every single vendor hassles you to buy their stuff, which got old really fast. (as... More
“Ready, Steady, Haggle ”
A classic touristy place - but not in a bad way, as Soprano would say "it is what it is". There's every type of artwork, souvenir and jewellery. Use your head and you can find good bargains and some quality goods here - but you must haggle, it's expected. The phrase "solo estoy mirando" is vital here ! or you... More
