La Casa del Habano – Old Havana

Old Havana is a beautiful place to explore. A walk through these narrow and ancient streets is a pleasure, one that could lead to the Cuban reference bar La Bodeguita del Medio for a mojito. While the bar sells cigars, the purchase would not be a mistake, for a few blocks away there is a lovely and magnificent tobacconist.
The Hotel Conde de Villanueva is small, nine rooms located in an old mansion of the 18th century, where time seems to have stopped. Enter through the wide white columns, in which it is likely to be received by a large cigar several feet long. In the back, to the right of the courtyard, is a narrow stretch of green stairs, which leads to the cigar store.
Each of Cuba's cigar stores sells essentially the same product, but puts its own stamp on the cigar, and each one has its own style. In the Count of Villanueva, things are clearly tilted backwards. Stickers adorn the door, and the store is full in the style of an intelligent teacher's library, since the use of tweed jackets with patches on the elbows is common. The room that houses the cigar lockers, usually out of bounds in most stores, functions as a living area here. Cigars are ingeniously stored in wooden cabinets of different sizes, which invites you to explore. The tables have arched legs, bent like the cowboys of the old West.
The cigars of the house are favorites of more than one client, including a Briton who instructs the house's torcedo to make a powerful torpedo of a different type to everything in the current market.
