Casa Havanesa is truly a mythical spot of Figueira da Foz. This former bookshop and photo house belonged to the brothers José and Mário Santos Alves, who were consuls of Portugal in Belgium and England.
During World War II Casa Havanesa was the shelter for many refugees, fleeing the harsh war-waging countries. The Santos Alves brothers were later honoured by the Belgian and English governments.
Casa Havanesa is nowadays a delightful bar of this enchanting city of Figueira da Foz!
