Havana Province (Spanish: Provincia de la Habana) was one of the provinces of Cuba, prior to being divided into two new provinces of Artemisa and Mayabeque on January 1, 2011.[2] It had 711,066 people in the 2002 census.[3] The largest city was Artemisa (81,209).

Geography[edit]

La Habana Province bordered Pinar del Río, and Matanzas. It had coasts in the south and north and had dozens of towns and a few small cities which rank between the 20 and 40 largest of the island.

Economy[edit]

Much of the province's agriculture was geared towards the production of food, primarily cattle, potatoes and fruit. Unlike much of Cuba, sugar and tobacco played only a small role in the province's economy. There was also much industrialization in the province, with numerous electricity plants and sugar mills.
