Avenida de los Presidentes, popularly known as Calle G, is a meeting point for the capital’s population, especially youth, and one of the most lively places in Havana’s Vedado neighborhood.

This Havana artery has wide parks and well-preserved landscaping, making it a perfect place to converse, enjoy the sounds of the city or simply walk around, in good company, from 23rd Street to Malecón.

In the evenings, the youngest gather in groups, some play guitar, and others chant the songs of fashion or music with which they identify. This is one of the busiest and most effervescent moments on G Street.

Other of the values that characterize this avenue as a symbol of Havana are the large number of monuments to leaders of Latin American history such as Salvador Allende, Benito Juarez, Simón Bolívar, among others. This condition makes it one of the most important sculptural ensembles in the city.

The Avenida de los Presidentes is one of the main and busiest arteries of Vedado, because on both sides are important centers such as Calixto García Hospital, the Alliance Française, the International Institute of Journalism, the Hotel Presidente, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, among many others.

Also in G, there are cultural events such as presentations and sales of books, children’s shows, literary cafés, among other proposals that offer visitors this avenue of history, entertainment and Cuba.
