View of Moro Castle.

This view of El Morro with sailors and cannon on the opposite shore illustrates a fascinating article on the importance of Havana to Cuba, Spain, and the United States. The article describes the wealth of the city, its “heavy" architecture, and current state of revolutionary fervor, and wishes the Cuban people success in their struggle for freedom.
