US President Barack Obama has arrived in the Cuban capital of Havana with a historic visit in the wake of the Cuban normalization process.
Air Force One touched down at 4:18 p.m. local time (20:18GMT).
While Obama's official program begins on Monday, March 21, he will have a cultural tour of the Cuban capital on Sunday.
Our correspondent reports that the weather in Havana was sunny the whole day, but the moment that Air Force One touched the Cuban soil it began to rain.
The US president and his family were greeted on the ground by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Eduardo Rodriguez Parrilla, Cuban Ambassador to the United States Jose Cabanas and Josefina Vidal, the head of US affairs at Cuba's Foreign Ministry.
Obama waved and smiled as he climbed into the car together with first lady Michelle. The convoy immediately left for the Cuban capital where the president is expected to visit Old Havana and meet with Cardinal Jaime Ortega at the Cathedral.
Relations between Washington and Havana began to improve after Obama announced in December 2014 a historic change in US policy, including the loosening of restrictions on travel and trade.
Obama will be the first sitting US president to go to Cuba since Calvin Coolidge, 88 years ago in 1928.
