The building dates from 1940 and is located in an area of Vedado where once and yet still lived or living personalities of the art world.
At "Casa Antigua", eclectic decorative elements from different cultures make an interesting fusion style, while remarkable facts are the neo-classical and the Cuban colonial architecture. The green wooden doors and windows and Corinthian columns in the veranda give building a touch of class.The entrance, with a large double door with gate protected by a hand forged iron lattice open up the road to the house.
Upon reaching the first landing of the stairs we can realize a lamp with a figure of Victory that welcomes us and already in the top you can enjoy a beautiful niche that houses the Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre, patroness of Cuba and our faith.
The rooms overlook the central courtyard of the house where they are completely surrounded by plants and an intense tropical light as well as some crafts made by friends or ourselves, and here you can enjoy peace of mind while we discuss plans to visit, history or politics.
The dining room of the house is decorated with plates, sculptures, clocks, prints of the nineteenth century, glassware and lamps from the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, original oil paintings and Cuban mahogany furniture, made in Cuba in 1920 under Sheraton influence and it is basically used by the family or when you request for dinner at home, and it will be served with exquisite taste while enjoying live music performed by your host.
