First of all the place is amazing and beautiful, I wish I'd live there. And then the story of this singer is an inspiring one. It's a must go if you're in La Habana or Viñales area. Do it!

The museum is located in the house that Polo Montanez preferred to live in. It has a terrific view over a small lake/pond. I loved the quotations that are printed on the walls.

Polo Montanez was a Cuban singer and songwriter. He lived this house and with his ensemble played at its different touristic installations like Hotel Moka, Rancho Curujey and Cafetal Buenavista. His music lives on

This is the house of a farmer that use to be a singer and die in a fatal car accident when his career was on top. You can see his awards and know his brother, who work in the museum as guide.
