Havana grows in spite of the Plague
Plagues were nothing new to Europe…. They were recorded as far back as 1347, and continued on until 1750. In 1649, a terrible epidemic was brought into Cuba by one of the ships that had arrived from Europe. Most likely it was the Bubonic Plague, which, at the time, killed roughly a third of Cuba’s population. As bad as it was, and in spite of this setback, by the end of the 1600’s, Havana had become the third largest city in the Americas.
