Facia Repairs

Many buildings in Havana, Cuba have extensive damage by forced neglect, due to the extremely weak economy driven by the American trade embargo. Bit by bit the facia of buildings facing streets frequented by tourists are being repaired and painted, providing a misleading sense of their physical condition. On side streets this work is not being carried out.
