Havana is the capital city, major port, and leading commercial centre of Cuba. The city is one of the 14 Cuban provinces.

Morro Castle is a picturesque fortress guarding the entrance to Havana bay in Havana, Cuba. Juan Bautista Antonelli, an Italian engineer, was commissioned to design the structure. When it was built in 1589, Cuba was under the control of Spain. The castle, named after the biblical Magi, was later captured by the British in 1762.
