Diez de Octubre is one of the 15 municipalities or boroughs (municipios in Spanish) in the city of Havana, Cuba.

Overview[edit]

It is one of the oldest municipalities of the capital. Its foundation dates from the second half of the 17th Century aimed at populating the city when the Canary Islanders emigrate to Cuba.[citation needed]
