This was aledgedly the very first private house in La Habana (or so the guide told me) right opposite the cathedral. Cute and lovely, the original furniture is on display and the house is not too big so it makes for a really pleasant visit....More

Just thought we'd stop in because it was so close to our hotel but found it was absolutely fascinating. The majolica flower vases, 5 feet tall, are not to be missed along with Murano crystal and other chandeliers. My personal favorites were the door knockers...More
