In La Habana the streets have an urban checkerboard pattern with roads that intersect at right angles. Every block (from street to street) is called "quadra." The B&B is pretty close to the calle 23 that runs through the Vedado for over 2 km from the Malecón (i.e. the waterfront) to the cemetery of Colón (Christopher Columbus) considered for architectural value, artistic and size of the largest cemetery in the world. Calle 23 is called "la Rampa" in the section between the hotel Nacional, Art-Deco building (1930) overlooking the sea, and Habana Libre luxury hotel, decorated with a huge ceramic mural. This important road focuses banks, travel agencies, cinemas, bars and hotels' night clubs. Also on calle 23 and opposite to Building Focsa, the tallest building in Havana, we will find the Coppelia ice-cream shop, which was made famous in the world by the film Strawberry and Chocolate (Fresa y Chocolate) and that, along with the same calle 23, It is one of the stainless and most important institutions of the capital.
