Malecón is simply the Spanish word for a wall at the shore of the ocean. Often it is a wall next to a street built afterwards in front of buildings close to the ocean. When using the word most people think of the Malecón in La Habana, Cuba – but most cities located at the shore on Cuba have a Malecón.

The Malecón of La Habana was begun in 1901 close to the Paseo del Prado and expanded over the years to north and south. Today many impressive buildings and memorials are located at the Malecón. I really enjoyed walking along the wall in the evening hours and watching the vivid life on the places close to the shore.
