Havana suffered from being burnt by buccaneers in 1538, and looted in 1555 and 1553. Great Britain seized the city in 1762, then exchanged it for Florida the following year. After regaining the city, the Spanish made it the most heavily fortified city in the Americas.
In the 1920s during Prohibition in the United States, Havana became a popular vacation destination for Americans; the nightclubs and gambling survived Repeal, but most were closed in 1959 after the Cuban Revolution.
Havana's International airport is Jose Marti International Airport.
