Excursion details - Cannon Shot Ceremony

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Scenic Tour
  • Refreshment Included
You’ll join a timeline’s worth of audiences when you watch the Cannon Shot Ceremony at Havana’s Fort of St Charles. The thunderous firing of a cannon ball has taken place on the ramparts since the 18th century. It was invented to signal the closing of the fort’s doors. And, since its beginnings, it’s been watched by everyone from the colonial leader of Cuba, King Carlos III, to his revolutionary predecessor, Che Guevara. You’ll start your experience with a tour of the grounds and find out about the 200-year role the building has played in Cuba’s military history. Then, with your ear plugs on standby, you’ll witness the custom itself. With the sounds still ringing in your ears, you’ll have time for a tour of Havana. Wind your way through the Cadillac-lined streets and take in the colonial monuments. Finally, it’s on to Santa Angel, restaurant and bar, in Plaza Vieja for a Mojito or two.
Duration: Evening takes 3hrs
Just so you know: The minimum age for this tour is 16 years old.
