Why We Love This

Great Houses of Havana celebrates the creativity, design, and style that made the city "the Paris of the Caribbean." It traces the evolution of the Cuban home from the classic, Spanish colonial courtyard house to the “tropical modernist” villas of the 1950s--houses reflecting international architecture trends while remaining true to the Cuban tradition. Cuba’s social history is woven throughout the book. Vintage photographs illustrate Havana’s sophisticated lifestyle--the masked balls, yacht club picnics, and dynastic weddings of fashionable Cubans and their international guests. Popular cafés, hotels, theaters, and weekend resorts are also featured, creating a view of the privileged life inside the gated mansions of the city’s grandest neighborhoods.
