Universidad de La Habana

The Universidad de La Habana (UH) is the university of La Habana, Cuba. It was founded in 1728 as the Real y Pontificia Universidad de San Gerónimo de La Habana in a combined act of the Pope and the king of Spain. In 1842 it became a non-religious university called Real y Literaria Universidad de La Habana.

The university is located on a hill close to the city center. If you take the 88 steps up you’ll first see a statue of the Alma Mater and can then walk through the university buildings. In between there are nice yards with palms and of course – a tank from the Cuban revolution.
