Cañonazo Ceremony

Cultural in Regla, Guanabacoa & the Forts

The cañonazo ceremony, held in La Cabaña fort, is a theatrical show during which actors dressed in full 18th-century military regalia reenact the firing of a cannon over Havana harbor – a ritual that used to signify the closing of the city gates.

You can visit the ceremony independently or as part of an excursion. Arrive early, as it's popular.
