The Project "Heritage Recovery and Cultural Development in Havana: Segundo Cabo Palace" is a multilateral cooperation initiative of the European Union and UNESCO, implemented by the UNESCO Havana Office. The Project aims at the restoration of the Segundo Cabo Palace, an emblematic monument in Old Havana, and at strengthening the cooperation between Cuba and the European Union in the fields of culture and heritage.

The Office of the Historian of the City of Havana (OHCH), is directly in charge of the restoration and future operation and management of the cultural programme as part of its functions in the management of "Old Havana and its System of Fortifications”, a site of outstanding universal value declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.

The Project is funded by the Thematic Programme of the European Union (EU): Investing in Human Resources . The new cultural centre will be used mostly by the population of Old Havana and Cuba in general, thus contributing to the rapprochement of cultures, the intercultural dialogue and also favouring a unique management experience in cultural heritage.
