In 1519 "la Villa de San Cristóbal de la Habana" was founded. Its name is a blend of the chosen protector Saint and Habana as the place was known since prime times. The villa shortly became the island capital. Since then it became an strategic spot for the Spaniards thanks its geographic location and the port.To protect the vila from the attacks of corsairs and pirates a defensive system unparalelled in whole America was built and the Vila was surrounded by a wall or "la Muralla"

Since 1700 "La Habana" starts to overpass its own walls and an "extramuros" city began to emerge. With the demolishment of the walls on 1863 a new urbanization allows a wider development of the city.

In 1982 UNESCO declared the antique historic core, the 19th century urban development, the port channel along both banks and defensive fortifications, Word Heritage.

Ciudad de la Habana is Cuba Capital, goverment home, concentrating the biggest commercial activity of the country. Havana City is divided into 15 municipalities: Arroyo Naranjo, Boyeros, Centro Habana, Cerro, Cotorro, Diez de Octubre, Guanabacoa, La Habana del Este, La Habana Vieja, La Lisa, Marianao, Playa, Plaza de la Revolución (or just Plaza), Regla and San Miguel del Padrón .
