מה נעשה

We'll meet in the Plaza Vieja, in Café Escorial corner, next yo te statue woman on rooster . After reviewing what will happen, you will enter the streets less traveled by tourists, in search of the authentic religiosity of Cubans.

You will walk to the Ceiba Park talking about the process of fusion between the African Ocha Rule (Santería) and the Catholic religion. At the foot of the miraculous tree you will always see offerings made to the deities of the Afro-Cuban religion.

You will go to the Church of Mercy, a Catholic virgin syncretized with Obatala, deity of creation and purity in Santeria. There you will see different religious practices, this time, in one of the most beautiful and best preserved temples in Old Havana. This church in the historic center is outside most of the tourist routes.

You will cross the bay of Havana in a small boat that is the local means of transport used to arrive in a few minutes to the Temple of the Virgin of Regla, Yemayá for the Cubans, sovereign of the Sea and one of the most important Orichas.

You can be "consulted" by a "santera" in the same porch of the church, just as Cubans do. The santera will tell you about your orisha or holy protector and the meaning it has in your life.

At the end I will give you your "idde" A bracelet that symbolizes your "saint", a shelter that you will take home as a souvenir of our meeting.

Hi, I'm Elizabeth, founder of AVEC, an agency with more than 4 years offering Tours in Cuba. I am passionate about sharing Cuban culture with world travelers.
Religion is one of our most enigmatic topics, so I decided to start this experience with my co-host Luis Fidel, Professor of History at the University of Havana, born in Old Havana, surrounded by history, tradition and religiosity. Linked to the theme of the Yoruba or Santería religion, through his family, he dedicated himself to investigating the religious world that arises and develops from the fusion of all religions present on the island. We invite you to talk with friends and interact with the religions that are practiced in the city, experiencing the process of transculturation that gave rise to a unique creed in the world.

איפה נהיה?

You will know places with a lot of religious symbolism, without leaving the historic center, but traveling through streets and neighborhoods that do not appear in other tourist circuits. You will see an incredible Ceiba tree used to leave santeria offerings and two churches with a strong heritage of syncretism between the Catholic and the Yoruba religions. The visit to the Church in the town of Regla in the small boat will be a great experience.

I enjoyed this experience very much and felt like it was extremely informative. Especially about how the African religion blended with the Catholic religion. I had Fidel as a guide and he was very personable and very knowledgeable. I felt like I had made a friend and would like to have another tour with him when we return to Cuba.

This was a really great and once-in-a-lifetime experience. Elizabeth's friend Ronal led our experience, and he had valuable insight as both a Santeria practitioner and expertise in the religion. We never would have learned all that we did visiting these sights on our own, and the rest of our trip in Cuba we were able to recognize the practices of Santeria around us that we would not otherwise have understood. Ronal was very open to questions and had a deep knowledge of his subject, and treated us as friends. I would highly recommend this valuable, educational, and fun experience. Talking with a Santera was a special highlight and it was truly a magical experience. Don't miss it!

The tour guide (believe his name is Fidel) provided such a deep understanding of Cuban spirituality on his tour that we left there feeling profoundly enriched and connected. We learned so much about the art, history and spirituality of the people and how African culture and spiritual systems played such a huge role in all of it. We can’t wait to visit again to learn more. He was a true expert as a university history professor and a practitioner of Santeria he provided intelligent and thoughtful answers to our many questions. We also had our palms read and learned more about our spiritual guides.
