The Knight of Paris appears in front of the façade of the Minor Basilica of the Convent of San Francisco de Asís, on Oficios street. This popular character was a famous homeless man who began his journey through the city in the 50s of the 20th century. A type of Havanan Quixote whose real name was José María López Lledín, used to dress in black, and left his mark and legend in dissimilar spaces of Havana. His sculpture, like that of Hemingway, also belongs to the artist José Villa Soberón. Both the index finger of his right hand and his beard shine in a particular way, as people caress them as they pass, as if it were a miracle worker. They say that touching the finger and the beard of the Knight of Paris attracts luck.
