Havana Project is proud to post the latest issue of CUARTILLA INFORMATIVA, edited by Manuel (Manolo) J. Sanchez Victores. The newsletter is produced in collaboration with colleagues in the United States and Cuba, and is all about restoration efforts in Old Havana and Cuba. The newsletter is divided into two sections. You can download Part I here  and  download Part II here.

Important Note: I have not had any luck at all printing the CUARTILLA pdfs. If you need a hard copy, I suggest you contact Manolo at cuartilla@aol.com.

You can read CUARTILLA in either English or Spanish and there are beautiful color photos, lots of maps, and some planning diagrams. Here’s a selected taste of what you can find in the new issue:

THE TOWN OF SAGUA LA GRANDE IN THE PROVINCE OF VILLA CLARA

On December 5, 2011,  Cuba’s National Landmarks Committee agreed to declare Sagua la Grande’s Urban Historic Center (CHU) a National Landmark. Sagua la Grande is located in North Central Cuba and its founding dates back to 1812.

Restoration efforts in the following areas are also discussed:

THE CITY OF HAVANA

HAVANA’S MALECON

LA PUNTA CASTLE: THE QUINTANILLA BASTION

PASEO DE CARLOS III of the City of Havana

CHINATOWN

AT RISK BLOCKS IN OLD HAVANA (including cigar factories)

THE TOWN OF REMEDIOS

MUSIC IN SAGUA LA GRANDE

Many thanks to Manolo and his colleagues and collaborators.  You’ll want to be sure to download the pdf version of CUARTILLA. Remember that there are two parts. Download Part I here and download Part II here.
