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.

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.
