We visit a church and religious stalls where you will see different gods of Cuba and religious items. Then we will travel to the house of babalao Orlando. He explains you about Afro-Cuban gods in his altar. Orlando will predict your problems and possible solutions via oracle Ifa. Orlando’s assistants will purchase religious items for you for next ceremony in special shops. At that time you will listen the music of Orishas and you will be offered cigars, aguardiente and coffee (included in the price of the tour) used in Afro-Cuban ceremonies. After Babalao will use the cult objects acquired for you in the market, will say spells and fulfill a mysterious purification of spirit and energy ritual. This ceremony always happens in different ways, depending on the spiritual needs of a person. Attention! Consultation, rituals and objects for the sacrifice are not included in the price of the tour. They are determined for each participant separately at the consultation. Consultation (40 CUC per person). Purchase of religious items, plants, fruits and animals (4-12 CUC per person). Purification of spirit and energy ritual (10-20 CUC per person).
I live in Havana and I am a witness of cultural influence of the Afro-Cuban Santeria religion on everyday life of Cubans. Orishas (Santeria’s gods) have brought to my life blessings that I did not expect. I show you African roots in the streets of Havana. Also, I invite you to know about all the African Orishas and to improve your life with a piece of advice of a real Afro-Cuban wizard-babalao who is a maximum priest of the Santeria religion.
Aguardiente, coffee and cigars
We discover a church and religious stalls in the Central Havana. Then we will travel to Cotorro, which is the most distant from the center of Havana district of the capital. The house of the wizard-babalao Orlando is located there. This is a ‘place of power’ at the intersection of the energy flows of the city and the countryside. A forest and a river, which are used for some ceremonies, are nearby.
