The University of Havana was founded in 1721 by Pope Innocent XIII, but it is not until 1728 that is based having to host the Dominican convent of Santo Domingo. It is in 1902 when it moved from its original site to Aróstegui hill in the Vedado district. This would be its final position, and it would be built between 1906 and 1940 the main buildings that make up the campus.  The sculpture of Alma Mater was summoned before the Chancellor in 1920, and moved to its current location in 1927, upon completion of the steps.

Among the buildings stand the rectory, with its portico faced, the School of Science, with its magnificent courtyard framed by a high Corinthian gate, and the General Library, with its Art Deco facade.

Havana University 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.
