Owner description: It's hard to miss Havana's oldest convent (c. 1638-44), as it's painted a bright, rich yellow and occupies an entire block. It now houses the Centro Nacional de Conservación, Restauración, y Museología (National Center for Conservation, Restoration, and Museum Science) as well as the Residencia Académica (Academic Residence), where small groups and some individuals can stay. It once housed hundreds of nuns and was a refuge for young women with problems that ranged from the routine broken heart to unwanted pregnancies and dowries insufficient for marriage. The mudéjar wood-beamed ceilings and the lush courtyard are extraordinary, as is the Salón Plenario, the marble-floored hall used for seminars. The convent regularly hosts art exhibits and concerts and has a small bar and restaurant. COST: $2. Weekdays 9-5.
