Paseo del Prado

The Paseo del Prado, is on a street in Havana. On Avenida del Prado you can find 8 statues with figures of lions, made of bronze which seem to guard the attraction. "The history of the Lions tour." Havana was the most important town of Spain in the New World, so it was necessary to protect it against pirates. Spain decided to strengthen the bay and bought guns to protect and defend the people. During the neocolonial stage, the guns were no longer needed and so they were melted and used to create the sculptures of lions. In 1928, the President of Cuba commissioned the French sculptor Jean Puiforcat and fellow Cuban sculptor and bronze caster expert Juan Comas to create the lions to be placed along the Paseo.
