Callejon de Hamel
Destination: Havana
Callejon de Hamel - Address: Callejón de Hamel entre Espada y Hospital. Centro Habana. La Habana. Cuba

Callejón de Hamel (Hamel alley) . This project, dating back to 1990, highlights the prevalence of African influences on Cuban culture. It was initiated by the sculptor and painter Salvador Gonzales who, together with a group of friends, decided to paint a mural celebrating Afro-Cuban culture, reclaiming a public space as a forum for what they see as both a cultural example of community-based art.

A rumba group gathers at the spot at noon every Sunday, and musicians as important as Clave y Guaguanco and Los Muñequitos de Matanzas have been known to attend. The last Friday of each month is Ballad Night, with poetry and traditional music. One Saturday per month is dedicated to children's entertainment, and puppet shows, comic theatre and clowns abound. Disabled access is available.
Place of having forced meeting, for Cuban and foreigners interested in feeling one of the most successful sociocultural projects in our city. Among their famous visitors we find Harry Belafonte, Sidney Pollack or Compay Segundo.
