Feel the maritime smell of Havana's malecon while you travel in a vintage car for an hour to reach the fortress of La Cabaña just in time to witness one of the most typical traditions of Havana: The Cannon Shot Ceremony at 9 o'clock.

Every night, at exactly 9:00 pm local time, the thunderous shot of a cannon is heard in Havana, Capital of Cuba. The residents know that the Cannon Shot of the Nine sounded and the visitors wonder why.As it turns out, this tradition began in the eighteenth century. The shot is made from the fortress of San Carlos de la Cabaña, popularly known as La Cabaña, located next to the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro, just at the entrance to the Havana bay, which houses the country's main port. 

 Everything is recorded from the entrance of the soldiers with loops, hats and colonial costumes, (who are actually young artillery cadets) carrying lit torches and singing at full pitch, with a peculiar rhythm, the word silence, to then announce the beginning of the ritual, which ends with the firing of an 18th century cannon.The tradition was born to indicate to the inhabitants of the city that they would be closed the doors of the walls that gave access to this one, and that were constructed to protect it before the constant attacks of pirates and corsairs.
